I am long time user of BOING (for Seti@Home), in last few weeks I switched to Mac and I have serious problems getting BOINC to work. I am getting "The project is temporarily unavailable." message back. At first I was trying with just Seti@Home and I though that the project has a problem again, but then I tried several other projects (just for test), and I get the same error back always...

I am behind company firewall, but ports 80 and 8080 are open, so project shouldn't have any problem communicating.

I tried the latest version (7.8.3) for Mac and little bit older one 7.6.34 (I though maybe the problem was introduced with latest version) and the problem is the same.

Please help,
Andy

You posted the same thing at Seti@Home where some questions were asked. You never answered those questions.

I went back and answered all questions, and then I discovered what the problem is...

My company seems to be blocking communication with boinc/seti, only I could not see that. I mean there is no log entry talking about access being denied. I downloaded units with my mobile connection and I hope that boinc won't wait now for any other internet thing, before starting doing the work (I downloaded work for like 10 days, so I have little time before I have to connect again).
