I can for the life of me figure out why I'm not getting any tasks. Here's the log when I start BOINC? Perhaps someone can tell me if I'm lacking something?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Perhaps my problem would have been clearer if I hadn't fat-fingered my first two sentences, which should have read:

I'm suspecting there is a server issue. I have a whole stack of completed tasks that won't upload. Boincstats.com is also showing the project as offline.

yep, inclined to agree with scubaroboto


regardless of of what server status page shows, have not been able to send/receive tasks for 24 hours now.

boinc manager cannot talk to project at all

It may be a DNS issue, my boxes on my home network are 100% ok, boxes at work are 100% NOT okay.

Nope, has to be the Collatz server. My boxes that are not getting work are showing project back off times, but the "My Computers" section says they haven't connected for 4 days. They are trying to up load but getting project back off.

It also could be the Nvidia driver version you are using, go back to the 362.xx version and see if that helps, the 364 and 365 versions have some major problems they are working on.

So any idea why half of my boxes (80% of returns) can't access the project?

Bueller, Bueller anyone?

If I remove the project I can't add it back unless I use BAM!. Then it will not carry out is initial project download.

All other Bonic's work okay on these boxes.

My RAC is now down to 10 million, from 20 million and falling.

Was that the issue?

Apart from what appeared to be a brief outage last week, I haven't had any issues connecting to the server?
