1) Questions and Answers : Windows : Not getting any work? (Message 1404093)
Posted 17 Aug 2013 by Profile Raubhautz*

I am trying to run in this challenge thing, and Seti (BOINC?) refuse to give me cpu wu. WTF?! Sorry, it is getting very frustrating.


105	SETI@home	08/16/2013 18:04:29	Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.	
106	SETI@home	08/16/2013 18:04:29	Requesting new tasks for CPU	
107	SETI@home	08/16/2013 18:04:30	Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks	
108	SETI@home	08/16/2013 18:04:30	No tasks sent	
109	SETI@home	08/16/2013 18:04:30	No tasks are available for SETI@home Enhanced	
110	SETI@home	08/16/2013 18:04:30	No tasks are available for SETI@home v7	
111	SETI@home	08/16/2013 18:04:30	No tasks are available for AstroPulse v6	
112	SETI@home	08/16/2013 18:04:30	Tasks for AMD/ATI GPU are available, but your preferences are set to not accept them	

CPU and NVIDIA wu are selected in Seti project settings as well as BOINC/BAM! Group Settings. Of course I did not select to accept AMD/ATI GPU's, I DON'T HAVE ANY!!!!

Thank you in advance for any assistance.


PS - At this point, I have gone so far as to detach all other projects, less the 3 nci projects. Still no cpu work.

[...] The crucial change is to enable TCP timestamps and window scaling, as provided for in RFC 1323. Mac/Linux machines have these enabled by default, and I suspect most public proxies are Linux-based.

Windows - all versions since at least Windows 2000 - have the capability built in, but it has to be enabled manually. This requires a new value to be added to the registry, which is all the TCP Optimiser does to enable RFC1323 - the details are in the Microsoft Technet article on Tcp1323Opts. For those who prefer to manage their machines themselves, the setting to make is



Interesting find. Upon investigating my machines, I found that my Win7-Ultimate already had the setting in place; and it had not had any d/l issues. My Win8-Pro machine was missing the setting, though it had not seen any SETI work yet... I did not have an issue with my WiFi being used to d/l either. See ya all at the challenge.
3) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : Completed, validation inconclusive (Message 1283611)
Posted 14 Sep 2012 by Profile Raubhautz*
Hello - I am a bit new here, but all has been running well (as far as I know) until the last couple of days I noticed that, only on some SETI jobs, I get the status entry of, "Completed, validation inconclusive"!!

Does anyone know what that means? And if so, do any credits apply? Some of these results are on large computations and I hate to think that I am losing all my efforts.

Any advice would be helpful.
