    You can't if you are running an ASIC miner. You need to use a pool. At this point solo mining Dash would have to be one of the most pointless things you could possibly do unless you have a lot of money to pay for electricity lying around. Many pools have zero fees so you might as well get paid something rather than nothing (unless you find a block).

    You need to run pool software on a dedicated server

    If you're somewhat technically minded you can take a look at P2Pool. Otherwise, I'm not really that familiar with the process. Again, I don't think there's any point in doing that since the returns are so low right now that you're going to be risking a significant loss rather than booking a small gain.

    Although ASICs require a URL you can still mine solo @ solo dot nicehash dot com. Im not affiliated although I do have about 40GH/s on there starting today. Also I have used this site for solo Litecoin before.

    You have to set the difficulty manually via password augments. diff_4194304 is optimum for the 19.3 GH/s D3 batch. Enter diff_4194304 as your password. They give you a unique stratum connection to mine directly to your wallet completely solo.

    Hope this helps! I started this account just to respond lol

    I would not suggest solo mining for Dash right now.

    Hi Guys,

    We have around 500GH/s of mining power and want to try our luck at our pool, I have managed to setup a p2pool but want to try our own pool, I have tried MPOS and UNOMP but I don't have enough linux skills to sort, is there anyone that can help. I am happy to pay for your time. I will supply a VM and external access. Please let me know. I currently have Ubuntu 16 running and the Dash Daemon is uptodate

    Thanks
    Gui
