You guys:
I see some geeks here digging with their own pool: use a pc as the wallet server and other 2 or 3 rigs calculate btc into the wallet server, it should be the bitcoin program running on the wallet server, but how to connect rigs to it, any clue or link, I guess it shouldn't be hard.... thanks in advanced.
I did check the beginner'd guid and there was a "How to set up pooled bitcoin mining in windows" topic, but the link seemed to be unavailable.

Before you get too excited you might want to visit the various calculators and figure out how long it would take you to (solo) mine a block at the CURRENT difficulty, and keep in mind the more people mining,t he higher the difficulty.  This is why mining pools have become common.  http://www.alloscomp.com/bitcoin/old_calculator.php gives you a pretty good idea of the average, best, and worst cases for finding a block at a given hash rate.

That said, if you still want to do it, you have to edit your bitcoin.conf file ont he wallet machine and add rpcuser and rpcpassword, as well as rpcallowip, then you can connect to it remotely exactly as you would a pool with the username/password you set using the hostname or IP of the machine running the wallet.

Again, I recommend just joining a good pool, like eligius, slush's, or (no personal experience) btcguild.  There are other advantages than just getting your payouts much more consistently, pools do what's known as "long polling" which basically gives the client a kick as soon as the block is solved so the client/miner isn't working on a block that has already been solved.

thanks for the advise, just want to know some tech details--or have a try, well in the config file, do i have to specify a port through which the rigs connect, or there is default port. And, where the config file usually be, in win, linux and mac?
