I cannot connect to a remote computer running BOINC.
I type the IP but I don't know on witch port should I try to connect. Password - it's the user passord?

Thanks for help.

Tom.

Nein, das Passwort steht in der Datei gui_rpc_auth.cfg, und in remote_hosts.cfg musst Du die Namen oder IP-Adressen aller Deiner Rechner eintragen. Siehe auch hier.

Please see Remote Hosts.

You will need a remote_hosts.cfg file on the computer doing the controlling. It needs to be in the BOINC Data directory. In it it must have the IP address or NetBIOS name of the remote computer.

Then on the remote computer, the gui_rpc_auth.cfg file needs to be changed so it has a manageable password. At the time of opening it, it will have the random 32 character hexadecimal password in it. Delete that one and put in a password of your own.

Restart the BOINC client on the remote machine, after changing this file.

Now open BOINC Manager on your controlling machine, Advanced view->Advanced->Select computer...->type in the IP address or NetBIOS name of the remote computer and the password you set for the other machine.

That should do it.
