1. Mining nodes
At present, AntPool has deployed mining nodes in many regions at home and abroad and is adding more nodes continuously. When connecting to AntPool, miners will be automatically distributed to their nearest nodes to ensure the stability of mining and to avoid delay of hash rate submission.
2. Mining addresses and fees
（default as 0.01）
AntPool supports payment methods: PPS，PPLNS, FPPS(take affect on July 13, 2020)
FPPS is full PPS. The payment distribution includes: fixed block reward (current 6.25 BTC) + transaction fee. The actual earings of FPPS is not affected by the pool lucky.
2) PPS (Pay Per Share)
PPS refers to a reward system used by bitcoin mining pools, where you are rewarded for your hashing power on a share basis. Bitcoin miners do a much speeded up version of the sha256 algorithm outlined here. The more power you have, the more shares you can submit per second.
3) PPLNS (Pay Per Last N Shares):
PPLNS is calculated by the proportion of miners’ hashrates in the pool’s total in the last N difficulty rounds, when a block is found. Transaction fees not paid out to miners for maintaining cost and the bonus for our engineers. With PPLNS, miners’ payout is connected to blocks found.
3. Worker configuration
Format of Worker is “sub-account. miner ID”, miner ID could be letters or numbers or their combination. Once miner is configured and starts running, worker will be synchronized automatically in AntPool, thus there is no need to manually create. Password: You can leave it blank or fill in arbitrarily. If you would like to batch manage miners, it is recommended to fill in 123 as password. For example, if your sub-account is antpoolminer, you could configure your miners as: antpoolminer.btc001, antpoolminer.btc002... and so on.
4. Obtain miner IP
You could use “IP Reporter” software to obtain miner IP on the LAN.

5. Connect Miner
After you have obtained miner IP, enter the miner IP into the webpage browser on the computer in same LAN. Using default user name and password (user name: root; password: root) you could login miner backstage.
