Hello.
You see my problem.
It's been a while that BOING is not sending me new tasks. All I got is the following repeatting messages:
8/9/2010 12:39:03 μμ SETI@home Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
8/9/2010 12:39:03 μμ SETI@home Requesting new tasks for GPU
8/9/2010 12:39:08 μμ SETI@home Scheduler request failed: Error 417
8/9/2010 12:40:52 μμ SETI@home Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
8/9/2010 12:40:52 μμ SETI@home Requesting new tasks for GPU
8/9/2010 12:40:57 μμ SETI@home Scheduler request failed: Error 417
What can I do?

Wait till Friday afternoon.

From the front page news:

Weekly Outage and Initial Catch Up
Every Tuesday morning (Pacific time) we begin a 3 day data distribution outage to focus on science processing and development plus any needed systems maintenance. The upload/download servers will be offline during this time. The web site (including the forums) will only be offline during the database maintenance and backup portion of the outage. On Friday, you may experience connectivity issues as the servers catch up with demand.

Thank you Jord but I believe the problem is deeper becouse I have this situation all over the summer. Somehow I cannot receive any new tasks.

Then you could try Ageless's advice from back when (http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=3034):

Ah, the infamous error 417. This is a HTTP error.
This can possibly be fixed by telling BOINC to use HTTP 1.0 communications only. To do so, make a cc_config.xml file in your BOINC Data directory.
Put these lines into it:
<cc_config>
<options>
<http_1_0>1</http_1_0>
</options>
</cc_config>

Open BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Advanced->Read config file.
Now try to upload/download.


See also this thread.

Gruß,
Gundolf
