I have several systems crunching even though only one has a TCP/IP connection.  Here is how I do it.

Set up a shared network directory and install the client on it.

Start the client on the connected PC.  It will fetch fifty blocks and get to work.

Start the client on the non-connected PCs at the shared network drive.  They will start crunching the stored pool of blocks.

You are cranking.

PS Do this for Team Warped.  Warped at ionet.net
