I am running Seti@home on a Mac Mini, under latest Mojave.

I have recently returned to participating in Seti@home since upgrading to a new computer.

I have downloaded and installed the latest BOINC software and the program seems to be running and working OK.

However, when I look at the Transfers window in Boinc, it is always empty, No transfers are being shown.

When I look at Tasks, it appears to be completing tasks to 100% anmd loading new tasks to replace completed tasks. However the Transfers window shows no record of activity.

Is everything working OK, Am i actually completing and uplading completed tasks? And if so, should the Transfers window be recording and showing the work units I have completed and uploaded? I am pretty sure this is how it used to work in the past.

I would welcome some comment/explaination of what is going on here.

Thanks

The transfer window only shows tasks that are in the process of being uploaded or downloaded thus spends most of its life empty.

The place to see what is running/waiting to run/waiting to report is the "tasks" window (provided you are "show all tasks" mode - that is the button at the top showing "show running tasks")
