Just to add, there also seems to be an issue downloading new work units also.

We are nearly out of Collatz tasks now on one of the hosts.

Hi Slicker,

I can confirm, as others have done, that all problems look like they are resolved.

Thank you so much.

Hi,

Just as an update re: DNS..

I have 2 machines using the same broadband router both on wifi.

Both machines have Collatz added, and yet one machine can get WUs, the other cannot and gets deffered for 24 hours.

Clearly they both use the same DNS via the router.

The machine that cannot get WUs had collatz added in the last week or so, the machine that can get WUs had Collatz added 2/3+ weeks ago.

The two machines are called DELL-2XEON-001 (WUs) and DELL-2XEON-002 (no WUs).

Thanks,

Chris

On Windows to flush your DNS, do this:

Press the start button, if you have a search box type into it, if not just type:

cmd (press enter)

ipconfig /flushdns (press enter)

This will flush your DNS; however I personally did that days ago and it did not make any difference.

Hi,

Just to clarify, there seems to be 3 different problems with Collatz at the moment.

1. Clients that have added the project but cannot download new WU's.

2. Clients that have yet to add the project, and cannot due to the client reporting "Failed to add project".

3. And those that have crunched WU's, but cannot connect their BAM Boincstats account to Collatz, with BAM saying "No response from project".

Sure it is very frustrating, but I am sure Slicker is aware and is working to try and resolve this as soon as possible.

Personally, I have all three problems at the moment.

But I guess, like all Boinc problems, "patience is a virtue!"..

If you need a project to crunch while waiting, GPUGrid can put out some quite good numbers; not as good as Collatz but better than others..

Thanks, hopefully all will be resolved shortly.

The only way to attach atm is using http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/ something's broken with the ssl url...


Changing the URL to non-SSL in the AddProject Client Dialogbox worked for the first part eg New / Existing member.

But then when you entered details, it failed with the same error:

"Failed to add project. Please try later.."

Client has yet to add Collatz project, hence no project data folder.

Event log shows:

07/11/2016 19:32:03 | | Fetching configuration file from https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/get_project_config.php
07/11/2016 19:32:19 | | Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
07/11/2016 19:32:21 | | Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.

However, get_project_config.php is available (xml file).

Any idea's?

Thanks

Hi,

I am still not able to add project via client, or link my account to Collatz via Boincstats BAM.

Bam says "No response from project".

Client says "Failed to add project. Please try again later".

Thanks

Hi,

I too cannot add the project collatz to BAM (Boincstats).

"No response from project"

Also, the SSL problem is still there, and if you follow the link from Boincstats you get the failed SSL, so most decent browsers / AntiVirus tell you to avoid going to the site.

And now Google is saying about Collatz site in Google Search:

"This site may have been hacked.."

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=collatz+conjecture+boinc

Any idea of a timeline on when you would expect to get this fixed?

Thanks

Chris
