    I know this topic has been covered several times but still couldn't find ALL the answers to my questions I had about this for my particular situation and set of questions. so here goes.

    1 what kind of vps is needed (cheapest yet able to run it without a problem) all day and all month long
    2 I don't exactly know how a vps works but I do know its something like a computer located somewhere else that you can run all the programs on (in theory I guess). how many instaces of vagex can you run on a single vps? I would like to know this because I want to run the max I can to earn the most credits. IF I have to buy multiple vps its no problem as long as its not too much money or worth the return.
    3 for users that run vagex on a vps, how many credits average (realistically) can you expect in a day per instance of it running. 1k, 2k, 5k, etc

    I am wanting to know all of this because I find I spend a good amount on credits every 3 or so days. switching between guru and expert that adds up really fast. I spend a bunch of credits daily and wondering if with about 20k credits on 5 instances of vagex is possible (a day) or at least close too it. Just doing a simple guess here, didn't totally do the math yet, if I buy 300k vagex credits switching from guru to expert then guru and so forth, and I can get say 5 vps running vagex all month for about 100 dollars total a month. owning these servers and would be worth it to me if I can earn more then 300k a month. Hope all of this makes since :) Thanks for all the help to anyone that answers.

    Here's a hint:

    http://www.lowendbox.com/

    and

    Code:
    install debian 5 os, make sure its 32bit, then:
    
    apt-get install dropbear tightvncserver xvt jwm
    
    pico /etc/default/dropbear 
    /// change NO_START=0
    
    mv /etc/rc2.d/S16ssh /etc/rc2.d/K16ssh
    
    /etc/init.d/ssh stop
    
    /etc/init.d/dropbear start
    
    apt-get --purge remove syslog-ng avahi-daemon cups dbus cron anacron rsyslog
    
    reboot

    vagex viewer ~2-2.5k/credits/day, firevag ~1-1.5k/credits/day, or thereabouts

    credit earnings used to be higher but these are about what i've been getting, YMMV

    Guess I was tired of waiting and ended up jumping right into it. Used burst.net they havea 8 dollar a month plan and it was easy enough to setup.

    burst.net provides you with 2 IPs so you can get 2 instances of vagex viewer / firevag on there (you might have to think outside the box on this one) , it's not what i do personally but i'm aware of people that do. i used to run 1xvagex viewer and 2xfirefox on the burst.net win vpses , and that got me ~4k/day


    it should have been getting more than that but the VPS speed (both disk and processor) caused lag and stuff

    you'll also want to ensure you implement a bandwidth limiter otherwise your 1000gb will disappear with the quickness.. and you'll be left with an unsable vps (their bandwidth overage prices are through the roof)

    last but not least i pmd you about a service which would save you from having to do any of this ;) im guessing a few weeks of vps troubles will pique your interest, haha

    good luck

    Burst.net are possibly the most shitty VPS/Dedicated provider know to mankind.

    If you bothered to click on my link you can find VPS's with similar specs for as much as $2. Go figure

    Your ma
    You wont get a windows vps for that price however.
    I offer a service where if you buy your burst.net vps through my referral link I will set it up so it will run vagex on autopilot 24/7 setup scripts to auto-restart the program after 2 hours as well as auto-login if burst reboot your vps.(which they do often) :(

    Yes they are not a great provider but there is no cheaper windows vps out there and I have no problems with my setup.
    Have not even checked in on the vps in over 2 weeks and it's earning the same daily credits as always.

    Your ma
    here is details taken from the thread on the vagex forum

    Hi guys,

    Many of you know me here for the offer I was doing before where I ran a vps for you earning about 3500 daily/100'000 monthly for $10 per month. Link: http://vagex.com/members/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=4120
    Constantly checking in/billing people/creating youtube accounts and just keeping track was becoming too much work for little profit ($2 monthly per vps) so I decided to stop the service however I did learn a lot and want to let everyone know my methos for how I did it and how you can get an even cheaper setup for yourself [​IMG]

    What is a vps
    One thing I learned was that people don't fully understand what the vps is or how it worked so I will quickly explain here.
    Basically if you buy this $7.95 vps you get a second remote computer which you have access to via remote desktop. You can use this to then run the vagex viewer along with the firefox viewer 24/7 earning about 3500 credits daily or 100,000 per month for a tiny price.
    To connect to the computer is as simple as entering a username and password, anyone who has ever had experience with using logmein or teamviewer to access their home pc from work or somewhere else will know how this works.

    Why are you telling us this
    My motives are somewhat self serving [​IMG] , I am an affiliate of the vps provider so using my link to signup will earn me a small commission, Also vagex as a service needs people running viewers to survive and give views so we cant all just buy credits,
    More people running viewers means more daily views to my videos so it's win/win

    Why you
    I have been running vps for users here for several months now, It is a job as they do require checking in to make sure vagex or firefox has not crashed, also like any other pc they do require a reboot from time to time not to mention the fact that the vps provider can reboot your machine from time to time as well leaving you earning nothing.
    I have however learned how to automate nearly everything using auto-logon scripts, scheduled memory cleaning and vagex reboots so that even it it crashes or your pc is rebooted everything starts up again my itself.
    Also when you buy the vps by yourself it will come with nothing installed, I will configure everything and set it up so it will run on autopilot at no extra cost!!

    In other words, If you use my affiliate link I will save you an hour of setup and configuration and will also apply all the changes needed to make sure this runs on auto-pilot without you having to keep tabs

    What do I need to do to get this

    [*]Simply sign up through this link https://service.burst.net/aff.php?aff=4696,
    [*]Purchase the following packageVPS #1 (Virtual Private Server) - SolusVM - (Locaton not important) - CPU: 1GHZ, RAM: 512MB, DISKSPACE: 20GB, BANDWIDTH: 1000GB/MONTH
    [*]Then just contact me via e-mail or skype (Skype:scottledeuce, E-mail: scottledeuce@gmail.com and I will take care of everything else for you.
    [*]Sit back and have a cup of tea, you now got access to the cheapest and most reliable sources of daily credits
    [*]Also you are free to cancel the vps at any time, there is no contract period and you can pay for it via paypal, Credit card, Alertpay or Liberty reserve

    Burst doesn't sound like a disaster from this review, far from it.
    @scottleduece, might take you up on your offer someday as burst's prices are rock bottom.

    Anyone has an estimate of how much bandwidth having Vagex Firefox viewer on takes?

    Most low-end VPS have few hundreds GBytes bandwidth.
    My feeling is that 650-700MB will run out before the end of the month if the viewer is kept on 24/7.
