Port 80 mining (#29)

It would be great if you could offer mining on port 80 for users who are behind firewalls. Ie those of us who are trying to use free power at work .. ;)

  • This needs to be done over HTTP. You can use:

  • Port 80.. yea.. sounds like a good idea and all. but when everything on a network is using port 80.... yea... not so secure..... especially if someone where to do some packet tracing and all they see is nothing but a flood of these miners... people would start questioning that. not to mention it would open doors for security breaches... massive security breaches. Port 80.. not so good. Use a not known port or known port. If the port you need to use to mine on is blocked... than theres either a really good reason for it, you dont know what your doing. Or you should use your own network. I will - this instead of + it.. I rather not have my hashpower hijacked do to using a well known HTTP port. No thank you. OPT out 2000%

  • there must not be a deep packet inspection firewall at your work, or somebody that knows what they're doing with it. Or maybe it's not blocked because there is no perceived threat, yet. Stratum is soooo easy to block.

  • im able to go through firewalls at work fine, I find it usefull to have a screen that no one knows what it is on your screen at times bfgminer I just run usb blocks and what ever I get delivered while I set it up but I odnt think the port 80 idea is a good one

  • ... and besides...any good firewall that does packet inspection is capable of blocking the stratum bitcoin protocol anyways, even if it is occuring on port 80. I know. I block stratum at work.

  • There is no such thing as free power. Using port 80 for mining may be a security risk.

  • When you do not have control of the local firewall is when it's a problem. At home, one has control. At work, one may not. I see no reason to enable the thieving of electricity.
