Message 3731 - Posted: 7 Aug 2017, 0:41:33 UTC

I've has problems getting any kind of WU's. I've only managed two in the past 2 weeks, even though I've got all of the projects selected. It seems like there's a network issue between me and the server. I've included a tracert in case that's of some help.


PS C:\Users\XXXXXX> tracert srbase.myfirewall.org

I'm using google as my DNS (8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4). Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

You are using the wrong server address.

http://srbase.my-firewall.org/sr5/

is the correct url.

Oops. Well that explain's my tracert issue, but Boinc is pointed at the correct server after all, so I don't know why I'm not getting work units now.

Any suggestions on what i should try?

Hard to say, do you run other projects where you have enough work in BOINCmanager?
You can also check the event log. If you still not getting any work I must change the priority of the app on server side.

Message 3736 - Posted: 7 Aug 2017, 18:03:07 UTC - in response to Message 3735.

Yes, this is just one of 5 different projects I run across 2 hosts.

I'm managing the project for my host through BOINCstats. The only time I've managed to get a work unit is when I've removed my host from the project on BOINCstats, updated the local BOINC Manager so that the project was removed, re-added the host in BOINCstats, and refreshed the local BOINC Manager, so that it pulls down the files again.

Here's the Event log for SRbase, mostly from me messing with it as specified above:

It seems to believe that my computer will never be able to process a work unit on-time...

Ah. I didn't realize the other work units from other projects could impede these from downloading. I cleared out the backlog and things appear to be cooking along now. Thanks!
