Ah, so instead of doing two workunits at the same time, I do one at double the speed. Interesting.
Kind of... there's an SMP FAQ on the site, that should explain it. I just do it for the PPD boost, really. Deadlines are REALLY short though.
That's OK, I finish most WU's in ~2 days or less.
What SMP does is... It is a bigger WU and uses all of the cores, most have a dead line of 2-4 days. They are worth most of the time more than 1000. You can make the deadlines hat i can make them when running at 2.4ghz so i know you can.
My X2 4400+ makes the firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz, so a 5200+ should manage just fine even at stock speeds.
ok got it but how do i set it up? ok so i finally figured out how to get it to load my client...but it wont update it or show me progress it just says N/A
Have you told it download all new projects? (FahMon --> Download new projects) This will update the programs database of projects. It's about a 200kb download.
Hmm. I'll have a look at the site, see if it says anything. It may just be that Uncle_Fungus hasn't worte that project in yet, because it's a new one. You didn't point it at the work directory, did you? It needs to be the folder with the .exe.
Nothing on the site, try doing another update and restarting FahMon. That might do it.
Also, I just noticed I made 1000th post in here. Looks like Folding has really taken off here.
SMP isn't working for me. I put in my computer username (User), and my password, but it says couldn't connect to user-lotsofnumbers...
I do not have a password for my Windows account, is that what I'm missing?
yeah, you need a password.
OK... Solaris, open Task Manager and see how much CPU time in total is being used... I justy remembered one of the bugs in SMP.
NVM thanks ben i pointed it to the directory not the work folder sorry..... hey but check this out
update on team
Team Ranking (incl. aggregate) 363 of 84520
before it was 366 come on guys w0ot!! #1 is what we want.
Glad to hear it's working now. Also, be careful with WLAN and SMP... if the connection drops with wireless internet, it has a habit of terminating all the cores.
ya i noticed im running wireless...but when i game it resets my connection so ill leave it be no gaming till it finishes....eta 11 hours deadline 2days ill make it its worth 1700 or so points
Yep. Now all I need is a load of money for christmas and I'll have my quaddie.
Fun Folding Fact: An unoverclocked C2Q can score over 5000PPD on SMP client.

ok cause mine just went down a little......but were it says credit i will get that?
Ok, I got it half-working. It seems to be trying to connect to 0.0.0.0, and it isn't getting any work packets. :-?
Yes, as long as you meet the deadline.
@hat: Check you have over 512MB memory assigned to the client.
i had the same prob dude now that it actually tries to connect follow newtechis instructions copy his box option for option and it will fold.
I followed all of his settings, even 100% CPU and 2048MB ram, still nothing.
