It seems to be, I cant connect either. I've just reinstalled XP on my PC and was reconnecting to the project. It seems to have downloaded a few bits and peices, then stopped. Wonder if it were my PC that brought it down? Eeck!
23) Questions and Answers : Windows : Cannot Connect To Project Behind Proxy (Message 736881)

Once you have changed the config file you will not have to keep doing it every time it needs to connect.


Understood. However, I downloaded the work units (yesterday) by physically disconnecting from the corporate domain, and plugging into a raw internet connection that we have setup for visitors to use if they require internet access for whatever reason. I can do this at any time, but its a painful and time wasting operation. The changes I've made above seem to have sorted out uploading though which is a step forward.


As for the upload download question I believe they use different ports but am not 100% certain. Good luck and I am certain someone else here will be able to help you as they have so many other people including me.


Hummm, not good... I suspect you are right based on the connection issues I'm seeing here. If this is the case, I think I'm doomed.

Any other thoughts?

Hummm, I've moved forward a little. I've created myself a cc_config.xml file with this 'force_auth' option in it as follows:

-------------------------8<--------------------------

<cc_config>
<options>
<force_auth>basic</force_auth>
</options>
</cc_config>

-------------------------8<--------------------------

This seems to have allowed my completed work to be uploaded back to SETI (I had downloaded work by connecting with a raw internet connection that we have in the office yesterday - but cant afford to do this everytime SETI needs to connect).

It also appears to have updated my computers stats page at SETI with some information about this PC. However it now seems to be struggling to download further work.

I've been told our proxy is very tight and only allows certain ports and protocols. Unfortunately the person that set it up is no longer here... And the people that admin it now, are still trying to figure it out. If I can upload, should I be able to download?

Here are my latest messages if they help in anyway:

25) Questions and Answers : Windows : Cannot Connect To Project Behind Proxy (Message 736424)
Posted 2295 days ago by Profile Colin Steadman
Hi,

I'm trying to connect to the SETI@Home project at work so that my work PC can and do some SETI units while its idle as its on 24/7 anyway. I've installed BOINC and given it our proxy server settings (which I know are correct), but it doesn't want to connect. I've tried a number of other projects too, just incase SETI was down, but it wont connect to anything. Any ideas? I've done some Googleing, but cant find any solutions or advice.

Here are messages:
