Well, it's just now 8:00am in Berkeley....
Give Matt a little bit to do his stretching exercises before he limbers up his steel-toed boots to give bruno a kick.........

At least Matt didn't drop Half Dome on to the server(Possibly the Largest known single piece of Granite in the world).

Downloads not working!

(edit) Never mind! I rebooted and they downloaded fine. Sorry for the false alarm.

Funny you should mention that. When I was in Yosemite, I took a picture of that mountain. Just then, my digital camera broke, and I haven't been able to take a picture since. :(

Half Dome probably used up any warranty or life the camera still had left, Poor, Poor camera, It died at such a young age, Must have had a heart attack at seeing such sights. ;)

Anyone having download problems?
I've got a Work Unit that just won't download- it times out as soon as it starts to download.

It looks as if download server 208.68.240.13 is misconfigured or has suffered an HTTP service failure, but download server 208.68.240.18 is working OK - see the Users from Germany reporting bad route thread.

So yes, flushing (or otherwise bypassing) DNS should do the trick.

Jord, the users in Germany are also reporting that they can't get HTTP access to BOINC resources either - would you happen to know whether 208.68.240.13 is one of the servers which SETI and BOINC share?

No, I don't know any of the IP addresses of the servers by heart, but the BOINC server sits in the same cabinet as the Seti servers, so if they can't reach one, they won't reach the other either.

Doing a trace route to boinc.berkeley.edu and to setiathome.berkeley.edu gives me a timeout on the server after g6-1.inr-230-spr.Berkeley.EDU [128.32.255.110] as well. It does get there though and I can navigate to the sites (as you can see from my answer).

The Germans now reckon that it's some kind of peering problem in Germany. People going via N-IX can see Berkeley resources: people going via DE-CIX can't.

But they confirm SETI currently has an HTTP service problem on 208.68.240.13

Just reported about a dozen completed WUs and downloaded more than that in return. Everything went through at normal speeds.

There are two download servers, Bane and Vader.

One of them is working normally (208.68.240.18), the other one is snafu'd (208.68.240.13) - I don't know which is which.

It's the luck of the (DNS) draw which one you try to download from.
