4. Unzip the SSH Unlocker archive.

– The program uses the default username and password which is set up on all Antminer devices.
– If the password on the web has been changed, it must be replaced in the program.
– To do this, click “Settings” and in the window “Miner Login Passwords” replace the password with custom.
– Confirm the action by clicking “OK”.

6. Scan the network by clicking the “Scan” button.
– After scanning, export the CSV file by clicking the “Export” button.
– Next, open the CSV file using Microsoft Excel or any other program that supports this format. Copy the IPs list from the table.

7. Go to the folder with the SSH Unlocker utility. Right-click on the ips.ini file and select “Edit with Notepad ++”.

8. Insert IPs list and save file.
* Note: the list should not end with an empty line.

9. The config.ini file uses the default username and password which is set up on all Antminer devices.
– If the password on the web has changed, the same will be on ssh. In this case, it is necessary to replace the standard password with the one, which user has.
– To do this, right-click on the config.ini file and select “Edit with Notepad ++”.
– Change password in lines “web_pass =” and “ssh_pass =”.

10. Run the script “1_open_ssh.cmd” and wait for its execution. During the execution of the script, the devices will be overloaded. Wait about 5 minutes.
