Is it possible to get BOINC to log into SETI on multiple computers at the same time? I am logged in at home currently but it won't let me log in at work. Not sure if you are restricted to 1 computer per ID.


Also if this was asked and answered before sorry don;t really have meuch time to search.

That's good, because we don't really have much time to answer. ;-)



Seriously, yes, you can log multiple computers onto 1 account.

I assume you mean that you're trying to attach the BOINC client to the SETI project at work (as opposed to just trying to read the website). Your problem at work may be that:
1) The SETI servers are having problems still and therefore not responding to your connection attempt right now;
2) that your machine at work is behind a firewall and you need to set the proxy options in the BOINC client "settings" menu. You may or may not also need to set the proxy authentication options.

Note that if you need to use proxy and if it requires authentication, you may encounter a known bug in the BOINC/SETI software that will cause BOINC to crash when it tries to upload a completed WU. There are several threads on the website talking about this bug, some also mention a possible work-around.
