hi,everyone
I built BOINC Server and make a project like wrapper/worker according to

BOINC,http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/WrapperApp,but some file can't download in the client using manager,here are some

messages in manager:

And it can download some files successfully, but some can't. I have exclude the possibilities of firewall and dns. And I

think it may be the problem of server.I am at a loss.

Any idea is appreciated.

Maybe try again with a stable BOINC core client, 5.10.28 would be a good one.

Some people reported problems with later versions, the version that works for one person might fail for another one.


Make sure to disable virus scans for the BOINC directory. As you have the problem especially with the .exe file, the scanner might snoop into the file while it is still beeing transferred.

hi
Thanks for you reply.
I am using boinc manager: boinc_5.10.45_windows_intelx86.exe
and I can download the files such as .exe .png file types from seti@home ,so I exclude the possibility of firewall, and do you know how to know the version of the core client.

If you downloaded from Berkeley (which it sounds like you did) then the version of the core client will be the same as the version of the manager.

2008-7-13 10:02:26||[file_xfer_debug] file transfer status -184
but I don't know what do they actually mean?

Hi Huiping,

Here's an article explaining your http 403 forbidden error:

hi,everyone
Now I just re-built a project, and there are three files in a directory , of which two are .exe file and another is job.xml file. and job.xml can download from the server successfully using manager, however the exe files can't download. Confused. Is it because the exe files are too big?

Any idea will be appreciated.

Can you download all files with a web browser or does it give you a 403 there too?

Make sure to use the same connection type for that test, i.e. if your BOINC uses a proxy, put the same proxy for the web browser.

Try the same with all firewalls (zone alarm, windows XP firewall, virus scanner firewall ...) disabled.

Some malware program detection might recognize the executable program download as a pattern of all those downloader virii.

Compare owner and linux access rights of your download directory files. If you added the binaries with FTP, the umask setting might lead to insufficient read permissions for the web user. If in doubt, just "chmod a+r *" in the download directory.

Thank you a lot.
Now the files can download successfully, the reason is about the access right of the .exe files. :)
