did you happen to read the front page or any other posts on the forums. I bet you've been having this problem for the last few weeks?
Just an FYI. Its always to better to read first posts/home page/ forums and then post if you didnt find anything about your problem then start another thread. Heck half the threads here are about your problem. So instead of answering you I will allow you to discover the answer for yourself. I've always found that finding the answer is better than having it handed to me.

read the front page, the nest thread after this one then jump over to the Numbers Crunching forums and Technical News and read a bit on the New Servers that are being installed.

I also have not been getting any tasks. This is what BOINC says:

Requesting new tasks
Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
Message from server: Project has no tasks available
Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
Requesting new tasks
Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
Message from server: Project has no tasks available

This is from 11/22/2010 to 11/24/2010

And what is there not to understand with the message "Project has no tasks available"?

And what about reading a thread before posting in it and asking the same questions that have already been anwered?

If you really have ~20 tasks that you can't upload the problem is at your side (firewall, router, ISP, antivirus, some other security software).

Can you upload any file to sites like this?:
http://ploader.net/
http://www.datafilehost.com/
http://www.virustotal.com/
http://virscan.org/

(Try it)

What changed on 10-11 October at your side?
(Install/change of OS, BOINC, firewall, router, ISP, antivirus, some other security software)

What means "The connections have normal finish and exit"?

"We have firewall, but it does not report any malfunction..." - but the function of the firewall is to block connections which are not explicitly allowed.

He's not trying to upload he wants to download. Apparently reading posts isn't his strong suit. restating the same question now posted by what appears to be hundreds of folks that just cant be bothered with reading the home page or previous posts. I'll not answer the question but I will suggest the individual making the query read a bit more before making a fool of oneself

Nothing

What means "The connections have normal finish and exit"?
I was on the phone with the "master of firewall" while I tried a request. He followed my IP stream through the firewall and was not any error (block). Then the connection was closed: ~ "address not responsing" or something similar - i don't remember

Did you try today to [Update] (button in Projects tab) or to [Retry Now] (button in Transfers tab).

Do you really have tasks in Upload state?

Post ~20-30 lines from Messages tab around the errored attempt to communicate.

But if all of your Computers:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php?sort=rpc_time&rev=0&show_all=1&userid=25600

are unsuccessfully trying to connect through the same Internet line
the problem obviously is somewhere on the Internet line and not in the computer.

Message 1058352 - Posted: 21 Dec 2010, 7:47:53 UTC - in response to Message 1056029.

I finded something in the Messages:
Scheduler request failed: Error 417
Google thinks: this is a HTTP error, and have to make a "cc_config.xml" in BOINC directory...
After I maked it I could upload 1 task...

Now I have only "HTTP error" in the messages... :(
The "Transfer" tab shows, that the connections are failed at progress 4.64-5.79%

You can't do the test while servers are Disabled!
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_status.html

Try when most of them are green.

If you want help please don't interpret the Messages in your own words -
Post ~20-30 lines copied from Messages tab around the errored attempt to communicate.
(best is to restart BOINC, [Retry] upload, [Update] and post all the first ~50 lines)

Post also the contents of your cc_config.xml
And where exactly is "in BOINC directory"? (copy/paste the path here)

(if you do not need help and can fix it yourself - don't pay attention to my post)

That's the wrong path; cc_config.xml must reside in the BOINC data directory, which might be hidden by windows.

I don't know if it was because of the cc_config.xml file, but the last scheduler request was completed successfully.

And twelve of your tasks have been reported since 4 Jan 2011 7:52:55 UTC.
