Thanks, and welcome to TPU!
World Community Grid - BOINC Manager is not able to connect to a World Community Grid client.
I get this when starting the program for the first time. I restarted my pc after install..
What do i do to get this working?
Needs more crunch.
Make sure you are connected to internet. If u are using any firewall softwares, add WCG to the exception list so that traffic is allowed. Lastly, if u are using any proxy, you have to configure WCG proxy options found in the (advanced view) Advanced-options-http proxy.
Lets know how it goes!!
Thanks, i got it working. i needed to allow it to connect through zone alarm
i have revised the first post to update the process.
Installed it, but I shut it down because I have some questions about setup.
Well... we can't help if you don't ask
Nice guide very helpful thanks
can i run two clients at the same time?
like run my laptop and my i7 at home ?
run it on every PC you can
Thank's hat, but I think I got it figured out.
I'm in and it's installed but I'm not sure if it's running because I don't see that window as shown above. I'm using 64bit version.. i'll figure it out.
Oh I will help him, thanks for taking my advice and checking it out Shev
I suppose this means I'm good to go? cpu keeps spiking from 5% to 100% over and over, normal?
Yessir! With your i7 @ 4ghz your production will be outstanding How did you setup your CPU usage (cores and percent)?
Oh, and you did join the TPU Team, right?
If you do not have the CPU usage set to 100% it will cycle between full load and idle to get to your desired %. So for example, if under options for CPU usage you say 50% the client will run 100% for one second then 0% the next for an average of 50% Usage. I prefer to run it 100%, when another program needs the cycles the low priority WCG program will take a backseat.
i logged into wcg and it says my team is TPU.
Cpu spikes 5-100% over and over, normal/safe?
100% cpu usage on multi-cpu setting.
See above. EDIT, log into the website and select my Team on the left hand side, and join up for TPU TEAM 22175
Never saw TPU anywhere on that site I reg'd at.
So the cpu is ging to spike 0-100 every second forever?
Under preferences for CPU, set CPU time to 100% and CPU usage for Multi Core to 100%
You have to log in on the webiste there is a link that says My Team, thats where you join up
ok set time to 100 from 60 nd now its constant 100% cpu..
wcg website says im on TPU team
I figure I should mention this here
If you have a 64-bit setup you might want to use the 64-bit manager from the BOINC website
Just run it whenever you have the time or feel like it. You can scroll to the right in the manager and you will see when the deadlines are for the Workunits you are working on. If you have any questions feel free to PM me or post up here, there are a lot of experienced members here that can help.
onedub sent me link to 64bit, thats what im on now. woot.
Follow the guide in my sig to set up BOINCView so you can monitor the client better
