I have an older Mac iBook http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=5550991 that won't upload to SAH. OSX 10.5.8. The last time it uploaded was apparently Apr. 1, 2013. It's running BOINC 6.2.18 and SAH seri_enhanced-ppc-v8-g4-nographics. This machine is also running MIlkway and has no problems uploading there.

Can anyone offer some advice, please.

I can access the URL using Safari on the iBook, but don't know how to get BOINC Manager to try to access it.

My Message log has this in it:

"Project communication failed: attempting access toreference site."

Just noticed that there is a new version of SETI for this machine (6.12.35). I'll download and install that and see if helps.

Installing the updated version of BOINC worked. Several tasks just appeared in my account as complete and validated.

Thanks, Arkayn, for taking the time to try to help me.
