I got registered to the BOINC just yesterday. I'm wondeing if I can run the BOINC application on 2 PC's using the same account. One of the PC's would run at work and the other at home, so they will have 2 different IP addresses.

No problem for this.

Settings are in "Your account", preferences, general.

BOINC will run fine on multiple computers. Just use the same URL and authenticator to attach to all of them.

A quicker and easier way is to copy the account*.xml file(s) from a working computer to the new computer. This avoids any typo problems and also allows you to get set up even if the project(s) are down or running a different major version.
