Multi-PC

You only need to install the miner on your other computers
But first, you need to edit files on the first one

Open your Local Disk C
In the folder / users / YOUR USER / .epic / main
Edit epic-server.toml

Line 164, change the stratum address to 0.0.0.0:3416 to accept connections

On the other computers, you only need to download the miner

Edit epic-miner.toml in the miner folder

Line 40, set your algorithm just like before
Line 46, enter the ip of the computer with the node and listener on

Run epic-miner.exe

Back on the EPIC node
Click the mining tab and you will see your other worker, a connection status statistics about your mining

Difficulty adjustment

This settings adjust the difficulty of the shares your miner sends to your node

It can be useful to set it higher if you have too many rejected/stale shares
I recommend 40million per 1080ti

Open your Local Disk C
In the folder / users / YOUR USER / .epic / main
Edit epic-server.toml

Line 171, change the value of `progpow_minimum_share_difficulty`

Restart your node
