You won't be on the vps without it being open, so no.

If I understand your question correctly, you want to mine bitcoin on a VPS but don't want to have the VPS client open or be remote desktopped in.

You can do this. You don't need to be VPS'd into the machine for it to run. It will continue to run without your input once you have set it up...

Not really my forte, but you could try running it in a TMUX session so you're still able to use the VPS for other tasks...

Multiple ways of doing it.

First off are you sshing into it or are you running remote desktop?

If ssh you can use screen, a daemon or init.d.

screen is the easiest. you just type screen and it will create a new screen, then you can start up the miner there and push control + ad to detach from the screen. From there you can just close down the ssh and it will continue to run on the screen. To get back to the screen you can type screen -dr, find the pid and type screen -dr [pid number]

screen -dr 32225
for example.

If your running CentOS you can

yum install screen


Ubuntu should come with it.
