I'm seeing this error when I try and connect with SETI@Home:- 'The Project is temporarily unavailable' > 'Please try again later'.

Its been like this all week so I'm guessing its my setup as its a new installation behind a proxy.

Last time this happened I added a cc_config.xml to the BOINC install folder and was away. Its not worked this time. I've triple checked the proxy server settings (both HTTP and SOCKS) and am 100% sure these are correct, but still no connection.

Can anyone advise as I'm out of ideas?

Here are my messages plus a link to a couple of screenies and the content of my cc_config file:

<cc_config>
<options>
<force_auth>basic</force_auth>
</options>
</cc_config>

You aren't connecting to Primegrid either?

No, but I only tried that on the off-chance that it would connect, just to eliminate Seti@Home as the problem. Looks like its BOINC in general, not just SETI.

Where did you put cc_config.xml? In your BOINC directory or in your BOINC data directory? It needs to be in your BOINC Data directory at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BOINC

Ahh its was in the wrong place. I've moved it over, but its still not able to connect. Any other ideas? It'd be a waste not to be able to use the processor in this PC.

Did you exit BOINC and restart it after you moved the cc_config.xml file over to the correct directory? Else try: BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Advanced->Read config file.

I did indeed, including a reboot, but it still failed to connect. I've just connected to a raw internet connection and it still didn't connect.

I have therefore uninstalled it, downloaded a new copy of the client and done a reinstall. Bingo! It now connects and seems to be doing its thing.

Thanks very much for your help!
