Why does the whole BOINC development wiki appear on this url? https://scienceunited.org/trac/wiki/SoftwareDevelopment

That normally means that the client isn't running, rather than any real problem with the connection or the password.

Try switching to 'Advanced View' (if you aren't there already) - Ctrl+Shift+A
From the file menu, choose 'Select computer...'
Leave both boxes blank, and click 'OK'

If that doesn't work, come to the 'Questions and problems' section of this message board, and ask again, with a little information about your computer, operating system, and what you've upgraded from.

Thank-you!

Looks like the project was down; back up and running now.

Murphy's luck that I upgraded and tried to attach at the same time? :)

Appreciate the quick reply.

Stay safe, Cheers!
