Probably means that you need to revisit your firewall rules. Some firewalls have outbound rules to prevent your computer from becoming a BOT.

You need to ensure the BOINC.exe is allowed outbound on ports 80 and 443 (there are a few projects that need different ports - but these will do for almost all projects).
