1. Create a XXLcoin address to recieve payments.
You simply need to download and install the wallet software for the coin, create a configuration file for the coin and run the wallet. Download the XXLcoin client from here.
Solo mining will make use of your current rig and it will mine by itself. All coins you find will be yours and yours alone. However, in this day and age, we strongly advise you pool mine. Pool mining assures you a constant payout and you will always get paid. Since the difficulty for Bitcoins and Litecoins are so high it could take many months and even years before you find a block for them by solo mining. If you chose to solo mine, we definitely recommend you only do so with some of the XXLcoin since the difficulty will be much lower.
Assuming you are using CGMiner and have installed it to the C:\CGMiner directory, all you really need to do to get started is launch the application via command line.
The basic information you need to launch CGMiner is the following: -o *servername:port* -u *yourusername* -p *yourpassword* So, to launch your miner you would simply click Start > Run and type in: “C:\CGMiner\cgminer.exe -o servername:port -u **yourusername** -p **yourpassword**” (without the **). If you want to mine a XXLcoin, you simply need to add the “–scrypt” flag after you call cgminer. So your command would look like this: C:\CGMiner\cgminer.exe --scrypt -o servername:port -u **yourusername** -p **yourpassword* If you are solo mining, your server name will be the local IP address for your computer (generally 127.0.0.1) and the port will be the same you set as the rpcport in the configuration file. So, based on the example configuration file above, the command would be as follows C:\CGMiner\cgminer.exe --scrypt -o 127.0.0.1:50771 -u YourUsername -p YourPassword
Settings for Stratum (recommended):
If you use a command-line miner, type:
./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://xxl.pool-a.net:7957 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password
If you want, you can create additional workers with usernames and passwords of your choice Here
