After installing BOINC and starting BOINC Manager it starts the wizard for attaching to a project. This doesn't seem to work and i don't know why. He keeps teeling me, that he can't connect to the internet. I cannot see any network activity of any boinc process (little snitch installed). So WTF? Can anyone help?

So much for asking to rejoin SETI@home. :(

OS is OSX 10.5.7

One warning, if you are using a company internet connection, it's possible your company is blocking your access. If it's your own connection, check any firewalls. If none of the above, disregard this post.

thx for ur reply skildude.... i'll chill out and wait a few days... :)

@Dena: thx... no there's no company firewall involved here, just the mac osx firewall (for incoming connectiosn, little snitch for outgoing and a router, but i checked the forums already to make sure no port forwarding stuff is needed to run BOINC)


peace

While I have programmed for many years, I am not a SETI support person so take what I say with a grain of salt. Little Snitch has been mentioned in the past, but I don't use it so I don't know much about it. This Link may be of use to you.
