Thanks a million, Jon (Slicker) and fractal!

Happy crunching, everyone!

Slicker, On a machine not working it shows "Server: ns1.pld.com", "Address: 206.253.33.130", then it also will show "Non-authoritative answer: Name: boinc.thesonntags.com Address: 73.75.172.167". For a machine that works, I get "Server: Unknown Address: 192.168.10.1", and then "Non-authoritative answer: Name: boinc.thesonntags.com Address: 73.75.172.167".

I think the 206.253.33.130 is a dns server outside of my control, and I have done all the dns flushings as possible. On one that works, the 192.168.10.1 address is my internal network gateway.
Does seem to point to a DNS problem, as we suspected, but I cannot seem to find a cure. It is just amazing that some of my machines work, and some don't, and there is only one way to get to the Internet from here. Flushings, reboots, and resetting my gateways make no difference. Sheesh!
BTW, IMHO, you do a great job here. It's tougher to run this site than most realize.

Going out now to reset the primary modem/server that controls this area of town. And will leave it off for about 10 minutes, so that EVERYTHING and ANYTHING is flushed and cannot be re-transmitted.


Seems to be an ISP or a telco:
Pioneer Long Distance PLD (NET-206-253-32-0-1) 206.253.32.0 - 206.253.63.255
Pioneer Internet PLD-INET-2 (NET-206-253-33-128-1) 206.253.33.128 - 206.253.33.255

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.

Flushing the DNS and restarting the router doesn't help here either.
Still can't attach new/detached computers or DL or return work.
Have run Collatz for years, now can't. What's the answer?


I have no such issues accessing the boinc server at my house from computers at work. It appears to still be a DNS resolution issue.

From a command prompt, what does "nslookup boinc.thesonntags.com" report?


I have exactly the same problem as Beyond: we cannot attach any new or re-attach detached computers.

nslookup boinc.thesonntags.com results in:

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: boinc.thesonntags.com
Address: 73.75.172.167

So I guess the DNS is ok.

Whenever I attempt to reattach my computer, I get these error messages:
11/10/16 1:40:34 AM | | Fetching configuration file from https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/get_project_config.php
11/10/16 1:40:37 AM | | Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
11/10/16 1:40:39 AM | | Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.


Is the get_project_config.php file missing or corrupt?

Thanks.

If there's an issue with the cert, then why are there no warning in any browser I've tried with any URL (e.g. https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/forum_thread.php?id=1351&postid=23283#23283 )


Jon,
Using the Account Keys option in my account page just now, I get the following error:

11/10/16 12:00:18 AM | | Fetching configuration file from https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/get_project_config.php
11/10/16 12:00:20 AM | | Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
11/10/16 12:00:23 AM | | Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.

Hope this helps.

Also the ongoing SSL handling issue stops new workstations from being added.

Just tried again with one workstation.



Tried on mine too.
Still not able to join.

Hello guys.
i had a lot of host that cannot joon the project. For the beginning i was thinking that was avast 's fault. But it wasn t

After going crazy for a couple of month i realized tjat the host tjat cannot join used old version of bomc (not the last release).

so i downloaded the last release of boinc, installed it and all clients joning worked as a charm!

Give it a try, check if u have the last boinc version, if not download it, install it and please let us know.
Regards
Gerlando


Yes, I have BOINC 7.6.22 installed, with NVidia 373.06 driver. I do not use NVidia 375.xx due to some issues I have heard about it.
I have also tried re-installing both BOINC and NVidia, but no success.
It really seems to be related to the expired SSL certificate issue, and needs to be resolved by Jon (the project moderator/owner).

Regards.

I suspect it has to do with the security certificate for the project being out of date. Thus instead of https -- we end up with http addressing here -- until that gets fixed folks are SOL for adding new computers (or adding a computer that got detatched back).

I have one computer in that condition as well.


Our GPU's are sitting idly by until resolution...

:(


With your pc's hidden I don't know what kind of gpu you have but there are several other gpu projects that can take either AMD or Nvidia gpu's. Primegrid.com for one, Moowrap.net for another, there are others too. You can always crunch there until this one is fixed. In your particular case some are even on the list of projects that will work thru GridCoin.


Hi, Mikey.
Yes, I have decided to use my GPU's on other BOINC projects for the meantime.

I guess I just miss this project...

I also cannot add my computer to Collatz.
Does this have anything to do with the expired SSL certificate?

Please resolve soonest.

Thanks!

I, too, had to reboot my Windows 10 machine to solve the access issue and clear the backlog.
