I'm trying tu get BOINC running since yesterday afternoon but I get the following message over and over again:

SETI@home - 2004-06-24 09:11:28 - Temporarily failed download of setiathome_3.08_windows_intelx86.pdb
SETI@home - 2004-06-24 09:11:28 - Backing off 6 minutes and 40 seconds on transfer of file setiathome_3.08_windows_intelx86.pdb

What is causing this? And how do I solve it?
What does setiathome_3.08_windows_intelx86.pdb do?

I'm not exactly sure, but I assume that setiathome_3.08_windows_intelx86.pdb is the "core" for S@H for BOINC. I installed BOINC this morning and had no problem at all downloading all the necessary things.

"Backing off 6 minutes and 40 seconds on transfer of .." means that BOINC will attempt to download it again after the 6m 40s has passed.

If you're behind a firewall or a proxy server, then make sure that BOINC has all the necessary rights and information to get through the firewall/proxy. If you're not, then i don't know what could cause it..

Hopefully someone has a better answer than i do :) Hope you get it to work soon.

regards

The .pdb file is the error symbols file for the S@H project application.

And yes, backing off is scheduling a later attempt to download. You can force another download attempt by right clicking on the file in question under the "transfers" tab, and select "retry now".

I know, but on all 4 pc's all is downloaded fine exept for this file, I now have copied this file from an other pc onto these pc's and all is working fine. I still don't know why this file won't download but this is a workaround I can live with.

Nothing ever appears on my "transfers" tab (BOINC 3.19, Windows 2000). Transfers are taking place both ways, according to the "messages" tab. But since nothing appears in transfers, I can't ever influence it.
