Well, I haven't checked all of them, but all the ones I've checked are refusing to send down any fresh work. The connection is working fine, and finished work was reported until it ran out of work. Affecting a number of computers, so it isn't one machine, but they are all connecting via the same network, so it might be some ISP-level problem. But only blocking in one direction?

I basically like my provider so I don't want to mention the name and potentially give a black eye for a hopefully minor problem, but it sure looks like no one else is seeing the same problem. So I guess I'm just asking someone to confirm things are normal before I start calling customer service to nudge them...

Please give us the names some some of the projects not giving you work.
Also, please post the 1st 30 lines or so of the Event Log.

This will give us something to work with.

Look in the Boinc Manager notices tab, and you will see the reason for the WCG problem.
https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/about_us/article.s?articleId=757
Especially this part::

As part of preparing for the final phase of WCG migration, we want to make volunteers aware of the following important dates:

World Community Grid pauses sending out work units: February 14, 2022.
World Community Grid pauses receiving work units: February 27, 2022.
Website and forum will be offline: from February 28 until April 22, 2022. A simplified version of the website will act as a sign post during the transition, to share updates and communicate our progress and roadmap for the World Community Grid in 2022.


Also the WCG forum, have posted about the transition, in at least two threads.

New company, new server, new location.
They'll be sending projects later on again.
Even my Android phone has now zero projects to work on.

I have had the same problem for over 10 days. Suddenly no tasks assigned on either my Android phone or Windows laptop.

1) What version of BOINC are you running on Android & Desktop?
Both should be Version 7.18.1. You can download it here:
https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

BOINC Android version 7.18.1 is NOT available from Google Playstore. Must be downloaded using above link and manually "sideloaded" installed.

2) What.projects are you trying to get tasks for?
As been noted previously in this thread, WCG is on a 2 month move/upgrade.

For Android you can attach to Einstein and Universe@home to get work once you are running 7.18.1.
Rosetta might have something once in a great while.
