Use a web browser and search tool to find the web site of any such project. Read the project's own description: many will be experimental, in test mode, or have finished their project and not be sending any new work.

If you decide to work for them, read the attachment instructions on their website. Some will require you to register an account on their website first, and some may require you to use an invitation code.

There will normally be a public statement of the url to be used when attaching to the project: if that isn't stated, you can try using the website address that you found at the beginning.

When everything is ready, open the 'Add project ...' tool in BOINC Manager. Ignore the list of existing projects, and simply paste the url of your new project into the 'Project URL:' box at the foot of the page. Click 'Next', and continue to follow the instructions.

Ah ok I see, thank you! Didn't know that it's possible to just add URL in the Manager.
Thanks for explaining :)

When I try to add these projects it says I need an invitation code:

YAFU: yafu.myfirewall.org/yafu/
TN-GRID: gene.disi.unitn.it/test/


Is there someone who can send me such code?

Thank you!

Most projects I could find using internet search are dead. Seems like any listing is years old and out of date. Pretty exausting.

YAFU: http://yafu.myfirewall.org/yafu/
YAFU describes itself as an 'alpha' (early stage test) project. The invitation code is on the front page, below the 'Join YAFU' button.

TN-GRID: http://gene.disi.unitn.it/test/
The invitation code is also on the front page, below the 'Join TN-GRID' line.
