When I try to connect a second manager window to my second computer, it asks for the machines name and password. Completing these results gives me "The password you have provided is incorrect, please try again.". I have just logged into that machine, and am sure, the name and password used are correct. Both machines are connected to ports on the same router. Both run Windows 8.1 x64. What is going wrong here?

It’s not your Windows (or Linux) password. It’s the one in gui_rpc_auth.cfg which is in your BOINC data directory.

And you need more for that than the correct username and password: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Controlling_BOINC_remotely
Please do not private message me for tech support, these will be ignored!

Working now. Cheers.
Glad to hear it.

For the record, and in case anyone else needs help from this thread in the future, 'Controlling BOINC remotely' requires a hostname/password, not user name.
