Say I'm a greedy bastid with multiple miners. I want to connect them all to my own private pool so they work together and not against each other. Is there open source pool software available to do this? Not P2Pool.

Yes.

pushpool
eloipool
stratum-mining

in the custom hardware forum there are tutes for setting up eloipool and stratum-mining.

pushpool is getwork only and I am not sure if it supports version two blocks?

Most of the other pool software doesnt support version two blocks.

Those private pool software are good, but most don't have their own front end. If you want to run your own private pool, it could be interesting to hack p2pool to not actually run as a p2p pool but simple a single node of a private pool.

You can then use their web interface, use their username = address method of payouts, use their fee structure (you set your own fees if you want others to pay you for using the pool).

the hack is from here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=193669.msg2010200#msg2010200

In p2pool / p2pool / networks.py:

in the bitcoin section change the
BOOTSTRAP_ADDRS='list of addresses'.split(' '),
to
BOOTSTRAP_ADDRS=''.split(' '),

Change PERSIST=True, to PERSIST=False,

Change P2P_PORT=9777, to something else (so no one accidentally connects to you)

I'm trying it out now, could be an easy hack to get a private pool running using PPLNS.

EDIT: to be clear, you don't share anything with the rest of the p2pool network. It really is just you and whomever logs into your server.

The +xxx difficulty is just the difficulty of the shares which p2pool users to report statistics. You can set that to whatever you want, but it should be low enough to get good statistics on the health of your system.

the /xxx difficulty is the difficulty of the shares that you get credit for payouts with, and is limited to 10x the default difficulty.

The default payout difficulty will be such that your private p2pool "network" will find one share every 10 seconds.
