Since this is purely academic at this point.

Say at work there are 100 Machines. Each only capable of 20m\Mhs.

How do I set them up to solo mine to a VPS?

Since I have a dsl, I do not have reasonable connection.

Thank-you,

Shaggy

install the official bitcoin client on 1 machine, run it with -server parameter, then install miners on the others 99 machines and point them to this one.

happy mining


P.S.
mining at work is dangerous ... you`ve been warned Smiley

Even with 100 machines I'd recommend a pool.

Shaggy's intention of solo mining is to avoid the network admins noticing the traffic going out to the pool, if the boxes are even allowed external connections.

Might want to REALLY think about it before you do it:

unless you have explicit permission to do this you are really risking your job for 20 bucks (not bitcoins) over the next few months. 

i think you would be lucky to get that from a bunch of machines that are working 20mh/ hour

seems like a huge risk, waste of electricity for less return than you would make selling some junk at a weekend garage sale.

The company in question will notice the spike in their electrical costs and upon investigating will find the computers are the culprits and then it's all downhill from there. 2 Machines with 4x5830 would generate more coins than the 100 machines.

wow, so I don't suppose he was responsible for the 9.5k->12k THash increase between the 20th and the 22nd was he? The story didn't say anything about the actual equipment hijacked. If it was, it would have netted him around 5k btc by my estimates (20% of total network power for 2 days). Thats $75k at current market value...potentially loads more if he just holds on to it for a while.
