Hi!

I've recently started to mine on my desktop and I've configured my brother's desktop to do the same via mine.

I simply added -server=(my ip) to his bitcoin client along with the -server partameter. I've configured the m0mchill miner as shown here

I've also started to use the RPC CUDA miner for myself (without a pool) by just setting the -server=(my ip) along with the correct -user= and password= parameters.

I get the correct hashrates and everything and my brother's client is only connected to mine. So my question is: Is it really working or did I miss something?

I didn't manage to find any guide on setting up a mining LAN, so I was kindoff forced to find it out on my own. I don't really trust my tech-savvyness so hence why I am asking it here.

Also: if I join a pool do I need to register my GPU, 4-way CPU miner and bitcoinclient only or also my brother's miners (who technically behind my bitcoin client...)?

Thanks in advance!

if your brother is only mining on your server, he doesn't need to have a bitcoin-client installed (and started as a -server),
he only needs m0mchils miner and connect that to your bitcoin-client.
your bitcoin-client needs to be started as a -server, allowing his m0mchil-miner to connect.
you can simplify that by creating a bitcoin.conf like this
Code:
server=1
rpcuser=***
rpcpassword=***
rpcallowip=192.168.0.2
#rpcallowip=192.168.0.42
#rpcallowip=192.168.0.*
for your bitcoin-client (where .0.2 is the IP of your brothers desktop).

and to join pools, connect all miners (or all you want to run on the pool) to the pool, not to a bitcoin-client.
bitcoin-clients can not be connected to pools,
only miners can do that.

Done that .conf, how do I connect to it with m0m's minder exactly?

EDIT: Found it!

Did I set up my own desktop's minder correctly btw?

afaik there is no -server= parameter on puddinpops cuda-miner, parameters should look like this
Code:
rpcminer-cuda.exe -url=http://<your ip>:8332 -user=<your rpcuser> -password=<your rpcpassword> -gpu=1

Thanks! I've got everything up and running as it should now and prepped for the reopening of slush' pool.
