until recently I used v. 6.10.58 of the client and everything was fine. A few days ago, troubles with DL'ing new WU's began. Until yesterday, I had >600 WU in the DL queue, but with no success. Now I switched to the most recent client (v.7.0.28), disconnected the client from SETI and re-connected again, but to no avail. New WU's for CUDA are still in the DL queue, but no actual downloads happen. After a while trying, I always (for the past days) get "internet access OK, servers may be temporarily down". Other users report of smoothly running connections and downloads for the past couple of days, so it does not seem a general problem, but more one with my account and/or client.
I have other projects (malariacontrol, Rosetta, Einstein), that all run perfectly without any issues.

Any ideas for a probable cause or solutions?


EDIT: Everything's fine again. An outdated entry in the host file was the problem.
