Hi Bengt - welcome to BOINC forum.

boincmgr --help
shows
Usage: boincmgr [-h] [--verbose] [-a] [-e <str>] [-d <str>] [-n <str>] [-g <str>] [-p <str>] [-b <str>] [-i] [-c] [-m]
  -h, --help              	show this help message
  --verbose               	generate verbose log messages
  -a, --autostart         	BOINC Manager was started by the operating system automatically
  -e, --clientdir=<str>   	Directory containing the BOINC Client executable
  -d, --datadir=<str>     	BOINC data directory
  -n, --namehost=<str>    	Host name or IP address
  -g, --gui_rpc_port=<str>	GUI RPC port number
  -p, --password=<str>    	Password
  -b, --boincargs=<str>   	Startup BOINC with these optional arguments
  -i, --insecure          	disable BOINC security users and permissions
  -c, --checkskins        	set skin debugging mode to enable skin manager error messages
  -m, --multiple          	multiple instances of BOINC Manager allowed


So boincmgr --namehost=<IP or hostname>

Should work.

Thanks, almost
I forgot to tell its Windows 10 pro
I want to monitor my linux box from my main computer No jobs are running here

Orginal startup-line
"C:\Program Files\BOINC\boincmgr.exe" /a /s
Works of curse

My new line
"C:\Program Files\BOINC\boincmgr.exe" /a /s /n=192.168.1.1
It hangs when I try to select computer manualy
Or
"C:\Program Files\BOINC\boincmgr.exe" /n=192.168.1.1
Does not work, this one does not hang, but does not log onto it

Whay does it not work?

Not the end of the world, but it will not work

Not this line
"C:\Program Files\BOINC\boincmgr.exe" /a /s /n 192.168.1.1
Or this
"C:\Program Files\BOINC\boincmgr.exe" /a /s /n boinc.sm7jqb.lan

This is not posible in the registry
"C:\Program Files\BOINC\boincmgr.exe" /a /s --namehost=boinc.sm7jqb.lan
It clames this long option '-namehost' does not exist

I have to live wit it this manual way, BOINC are running in my server 24/7 anyway

This worked for me:

boincmgr.exe" /s --namehost=localhostdevicename

/n and --namehost are the same, so it's an either or switch use

/a you don't use when starting manually.

As a note, Debian Jessi, has certain certificate issues, so make sure you got the latest version.

If the remote host has GUI RPC password set then that needs to be included on the command line.
