Couldn't resist, I just had to post this
Don't worry Dusty you'll own me on the next update
WOW! way to go bogmali!
whats going on to Dusty? he has a few rigs down?
Sad news guys. IT in my company installed new Blue coat proxy. Thing locked up all the ports used by WCG. Cant even access WCG site. 9 rigs have so many finished WU all ready to be uploaded. But proxy is killing it.
Anyone has any ideas to tunnel through?
Crunching only on my i7 rig as of now.
shit man, that sucks . I have no clue as to how get through that man, good luck
As happy as I am about taking top performer for this evenings pie chart, I am also sad that our top performer is having some issues with his crunchers Dusty, I hope you get things sorted out at your end and get back to full production and sorry that I cannot provide any help whatsoever cause I don't know jack about networked computing
Without further adieu..........
Way to go mind......I guess we need to pick up the slack from here on out until Dusty gets back to 100%
BTW....Where is Mike047? He's been MIA lately
Sorry to hear that Dusty. I'll have my 3rd i7 up and running soon to help pick up the slack. I just need to find a cheap (but good) PSU to get her running, since I have to RMA one of my Topower 750's.
Just tell them to un-install it..........problem solved
Our Middle east servers are directly linked to Houston servers where our headquarters are located. Global IT installed the firewall on the Houston servers. So...I cant do anything about it..tryin to come up with ways...I have posted this topic on the WCG forums as well. Lets see how it goes.
I hope for the best.
apart from running through a proxy or VPN tunnel, i dont see many ways out.
Wish I could help
Hope you find a way around it soon~
Not to second guess anyone,however this forum is filled with some of the most knowledgable
people around,that may just happen to skip by the WCG threads.Maybe a post in the networking and security thread might catch the right persons eye????
EDIT/Not directed at you what so ever Mussels(i failed to see your post above)and you were actually one of the eye's i had in mind.
Could u elaborate on this please?
rerouting the internet to somewhere else, that isnt filtered. google will give you the details.
As mussels said. you gotta find somewhare else to tunnel to. I use a VPN at work and the commercial ones tunnel through everything but I'm not sure how well the public ones go.
It looks like dusty figured out his tunnel problem!
And that's just the 08/28/09 morning update. Most of those points must be from his locked out proxy.
Nice going dusty!
Stupid question but how does it work? lol Is it the number of Nervous breakdown on the forum..that why you called it Breakdown pie?
go here, you'll see what we mean
woah, i got blue pie !! woot
I wonder if it would be possible for me to get pie if I stopped WCG from connecting to the internet for a while and uploaded a whole bunch of work units at once
once I had the highest score in the AM update, higher than dustyshive and everybody else, but then the next update, I was no where to be found in the pie chart
