I'm running various BOINC projects on my home laptop with no problems, but I've also installed BOINC on my work laptop, and SETI@home is consistently unable to get started. I'm receiving the following error message in the 'messages' part of the BOINC software:

" Scheduler request failed: HTTP gateway timeout"

I'm confused because the other nine projects I'm also attached to are not suffering from any issues.

To reiterate: SETI@home is the ONLY project I'm having issues with, and it's ONLY happening on my work laptop. Every other project is working fine, whether it's at home or at work.

Any ideas?
