I've been able to install BOINC on two different Macs (iBook G4 and MacBook Pro) and they've both been able to connect to SETI@Home. However, when I try to connect it to my personal MacBook (2008), I can't get BOINC to even connect to the internet. I'm running OSX 10.6.7. After I try to connect to a project, I get:
"Failed to add project
An Error has occurred;
check the Event Log for details.
Click Finish to close."
And when I go look at the Even Log, it says:
"Notice from BOINC
BOINC can't access Internet - check network connection or proxy configuration."
This is odd because there isn't a firewall and I have a fast internet connection. Currently, in the lower right corner of Advanced View, it says "Connected to localhost (6.12.26)"
That's pretty much all the information I have. Any help would be appreciated.
And updating of RAM have nothing to do with your connection problems - just a few days ago they (at the lab) "kicked" one of the routers.
This "kick" made some of the people (IPs) that were having connection problems for months to be able finally to connect
but at the same time ruined the connection of others that previously were able to connect (and for some - nothing changed)
