APMinerTool – This is a set of tools for managing and monitoring mining of Antminer farms, which also disables functions such as updating firmware, restarting miners, scanning IP addresses of miners on a local network, adding the antivirus function of a miner, and the function of overclocking a miner.
Antminer Toolkit Walkthrough
Antminer Toolkit is a software tool that is designed to help manage and monitor ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) miners from the company Bitmain. It provides a simple, intuitive interface for users to control and monitor their Antminer devices. The toolkit allows users to access a range of features and settings for their miners, such as checking device status, setting up and updating firmware, adjusting frequency and voltage settings, and monitoring hashrate and temperature.
Here is a basic walkthrough of the Antminer Toolkit:
- Download and Install: After downloading, run the installer to set up the toolkit on your computer.
- Connect to the Miner: Once the toolkit is installed, connect it to your Antminer device by entering the device’s IP address into the toolkit’s interface. You can find the IP address of your device by logging into your router’s management interface.
- Dashboard: The Dashboard is the first screen that appears when you connect to your Antminer device. It provides an overview of your device’s status, including its hashrate, temperature, and other key metrics.
- Status: The Status tab provides a more detailed view of your device’s status, including information on the current firmware version, fan speed, and ASIC chip count.
- Settings: The Settings tab allows you to adjust the configuration of your Antminer device, including the frequency and voltage settings. You can also update the firmware from this tab.
- Tools: The Tools tab provides access to a range of tools for monitoring and troubleshooting your Antminer device, including the ability to restart the device, perform a factory reset, and view log files.
- Monitoring: The Monitoring tab provides real-time data on the performance of your Antminer device, including hashrate, temperature, and power consumption. This data can be used to optimize the performance of your device and identify any potential issues.
Overall, the Antminer Toolkit provides an easy-to-use interface for managing and monitoring Antminer devices. Whether you are a casual miner or a professional, the toolkit provides the tools you need to effectively manage and monitor your Antminer devices.

Download for Windows:
Batch ConfiguringStatic IP
If you have already configured miner IP, please skip this step.
Computer and miners should be in the same IP range.
1. Double click to open the software.
Once the miner is powered on and connected to the network, the IP address that was received during configuration is in DHCP mode and is not fixed. If you have a lot of miners, this utility might help you manage them more effectively by setting static IP addresses in batches. A typical router has an IP range of 1-254. It is ad vised to let the router assign IP in DHCP mode starting at 100 if you want to configure the miner’s static IP starting at 1.
For example: Router assigns IP in DHCP mode: 101-254; Static IP for miners: 1-100
2. Fill the static IP you would like to set for miner in to”next fill IP” and select coin type for miner. Configure stratum pool address, worker and password in batches under “Pool Configuration”.
3. Check “Netmask”, “Gateway”, “DNS” in computer “Network and sharing Center”, and fill in accor
4. It is recommended to check ”√” the ”IP Auto Config” option, static IP will then be automatically allocated to next miner in order. If not checked, you will need to manually enter the static IP one by one. After completing above configurations, press the “IP report” button on each miner for 3-5 seconds, static IP will then be allocated to miner one by one. Option “Simultaneous IP And Pool Config” could be checked based on your own needs.
1. Detect miners in specific IP range:
- click on “Miner Manager” to switch to miner management interface
- click to activate “IP Editor”
- click “+” to obtain IP rangeD, E,
- double click on each IPsectorto modify
- Click “Save”.
2. Click “Start Scan”, to scan miners that have been configured. After the selected IP Range is scanned, a window will pop up displaying the number of miners in each state. (normal, low, other exception, lost, fail)
Depending on your requirements, you can decide to only show the miners that have been successfully scanned.
3. Configure Miners
- A: After changing the currency type, the corresponding stratum address for each pool will automatically be filled in under “Pool”. Additionally, you are able to manually change it. (Coinswitching could only be used while monitoring wasn’t activated or was stopped.)
- B: To mine matching coins, pick all miners or “Ctrl select” a subset of miners, then establish worker names, passwords, etc. for these miners in batches.
- C: To configure the chosen miners, click “Config.” A popup will appear after configuration is complete showing the number of miners in the states of “config success” or “config failure.”
Under “suffix,” the suffix of the worker name could be changed. The last two assigned IP sectors are set as the default suffix. When you click “Config” after making changes, the miners will be set up automatically. Then select “AutoMonitor” to begin keeping an eye on the miners.
Under “suffix,” the worker’s name’s suffix could be changed. The final two assigned IP sectors are designated as the suffix by default. The miners will be automatically configured when you make your changes and click “Config”. In order to begin watching the miners, click “AutoMonitor.”
If miners need to be restarted, select the miners and click on“Reboot”, then confirm the pop-up window to get miners restarted.
5. Batch resetting miners
If the settings for the miner(s) need to be reset to factory defaults, pick the miner(s), click “Reset,” and then confirm the pop-up window.
6. Batch restoringDHCP mode
If miners with static IP need to be restored to DHCP mode, select the miners and click on “DHCP” ,then confirm the pop-up window to get miners restored to DHCP mode
7. Batch changing password
If you would like to set new password for miners, select the miners and click on “Change Pwd”. After change is done, you also need to update the new password under “Settings-Basic Settings-Miner Pwd” to make it effective. For example: default password (root), new Pwd (123456), confirm Pwd (123456).
(Note: Please do not forget the password once changed. If you for got the password, miners will need to be restored to factory settings before you can log in to miner backstage again.)
8. After miner configurationis done, click on “Auto Monitor” to start monitoring the miners.
Default frequency is to refresh status every 5 minutes. Status will be displayed in different colors: normal (green), low (orange),Other Exception (blue), lost (red).
9. Click on miner IP, you will be directed to miner backstage page.
Batch upgrading firmware
If miners have issue and miner firmware need sto be upgraded, you can use the batch upgrading firmware function.
1. How to operate:
- A: Click on “Upgrade“ to switch interface.
- B: Select the corresponding IP range where the miners are located, check ”√” the miners which need to be upgraded.
- C: Add firmware (if you have not downloaded the firmware, click on ”Firmware Download Address” – to download first. After downloaded, click “Select Firmware” to upload.) Firmware file does not need to be extracted and can be uploaded directly.
- D: Click on “Add Firmware”, window displaying “Upload Success” will pop up when upload is done.
2. This tool will “Save Setting” by default when batch upgrading firmware.
If you do not want to keep setting of miners, you could remove the “√” beside the “Save Setting” option before upgrade. (Generally, firmware upgrade does not keep miner settings.)
3. Select “Miner Type” and “Firmware Name”, click on “Upgrade”.
A window will appear with the number of miners that need to be updated. If the upgrade was successful or not, you will be requested after roughly 2 minutes of confirmation.
There are three options under “Settings”, namely: “Basics Setting”, “Miner Alert”, “IP Editor”.
- A: edit the interval of status refreshing while monitoring miners.
- B: choose specific sector of IP to configure worker’s suffix.
- C: Default password is “root”. If you would like to set new password for miners, as mentioned in previous section, you need to not only change the password here but please also remember to change under “Miner Manager” – “Change Pwd” at the same time to make the new password effective.
3. IP Editor
This setting has the same function as to click the edit button under “MinerManager” interface.
This software does an excellent job with its functions. There is a version for mobile devices – IOS and android.
