I have three Macs running BONIC. Two are fine; one (iMac 2.66 GHz w/4G) continually has problems. I have uninstalled BOINC and reinstalled it. Now what? All other access via the internet seems fine. I am in Taiwan. Any ideas?

Care to describe said problems? It's really hard to make suggestions without anything to work with.

Right. The iMac cannot "connect", ie. get and send jobs. The iMac access to other internet sites appears unaffected. A few times I have uninstalled and reinstalled the BOINC software and that gave a temporary fix. Recently, that has not worked. It just continues to say "Connection Failed." Mind you, the other two machines continue to work without incident --- one (MacBookPro in the same room over the same wiring and hub, the other (G5 iMac Power PC) at home. I hope this helps you that you might help me. Thanks. NP

It's still a bit sparse. :-) The easiest way for you to provide information would be to post the first about 20 lines from the Messages tab after a reboot. And then some lines around a connection attempt.

All three of your computers are listet as having tasks downloaded, though. So, it seems not to be a permanent problem.
