This is my first shot at running the BOINC version
from a Win ME client. My account was transferred
over; I received the new account number/hash; but any
attempt to attach to my (first) project fails with
Master file fetch failed
... in the log file; and the error...
BOINC couldn't get main page for
Please check the URL and try again.
... in a pop-up window.
I use http://setiathome.berkeley.edu as the project
URL. No "cgi-bin", nothing else.
Is this merely server overload, or is something else
going on? It didn't say "server overload"; it said
it couldn't get there. What gives?
Ummmm. No. This is the old address, and has been changed, he was using the correct one the first time. Several possibilities. First, the servers may be overloaded. But if you cannot ping the url, then there may be a firewall/router/proxy with a bad setting in the way.
