    Hello!
    I've started spending a lot recently on vagex credits, and I think its much better to earn them rather than buying, as most of my credits get spent on tests and stuff.
    I'm monitoring lowendbox.com for a few days and there are a lot of 1.5-2.5 128MB ram deals over there. So here are my questions:

    1. Will firefox+vagex addon be able to work on 128MB ram machine?
    2.Does OpenVZ and other virtualization methods matter in this context?
    3. How exactly does one use multiple IPv4 address? One deal there was offering 2xIPv4 address for $2.5. But how do I set it up?

    Sorry for asking too many questions, but I googled and didn't didn't find convincing answers to any of them.

    Thanks!

    You would need a Windows VPS to run Vagex with at least 512 of RAM. Windows is eating up to 380MB at start up.

    Dealing with the IPs you can have several on a windows VPS but windows doesn't offer genuinely the possibility to bind an IP to a program. You would need 3rd party softwares to do so.

    However, Vagex would need several computer, so several VPS would be the ideal solution.

    Vagex allows a maximum of 5 machines. So do I need to buy 5 VPS? That's gonna be like $50-$60.
    Any cheaper solutions?

    4 with your computer.

    And dealing with the budget it would depend on what you are trying to achieve and if you willbe getting your money back with your YT methods. You could start slower and scale things up progressively as soon as you see the point.

    Lol @ windows VPS's.

    I used to do the same thing about a year back, had 5 vps's setup all on 256mb boxes. You can run firefox on 128mb but for flash you really need 256mb to get it to run smoothley.

    http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/221/running-firefox-on-a-128mb-linux-vps - That's a solid guide for setting up a basic linux setup. It's the same one I used.

    Better yet check this out - http://code.google.com/p/vagex-debian/ it's a script for automatically installing everything you need, use translate in Chrome to read it, when you run the script it will all be in English anyway.

    Here's a few providers I suggest to check out.
    http://buyvm.net/
    http://www.ramnode.com/
    http://www.prometeus.net/
    https://hostigation.com/
    http://www.ovh.ie/dedicated_servers/kimsufi.xml - a dedicated server for 10 euro's a month. If you bought some extra ip's, you could run multiple instances of vagex on this.

    What I found is that they usually get stuck every 24 hours or so, so I had to remember to restart firefox via vnc everyday, I'm pretty sure you could get a bash script made and run it as a cron to automate it. I think in the end I was getting 2000 points per day, per VPS.

    Lemme know if you need anymore help mate :)

    This is an awesome response! +REP!
    I'm a kind of linux noob, so I'll read through everything you posted, and will reply if I have any problems :p

    I was wondering about the dedicated server. That is going to be a cheap solution.
    5 IPs and the server itself would cost about $21 (correct me if I'm wrong). How hard is it to install OSes on it?

    Wow! Great job!
    But it must have took you time to refer 7k users. I need to start earning credits soon for my youtube videos, so I need an immediate solution.
