I get this, trying to connect to a project on a new computer:

You should check your internet connection first, then check your firewallsettings whether boinc can pass. It needs standard http access (port 80) and on some occasions / projects it needs also port https (443?! on windows), but not for einstein@home...

Hope this will help...

greetings,

That's the problem, It's a computer at work. I can't check much...
Everything is working on another computer here at work. I'm running an older version af boinc there. Could that be the problem? It's the same with Rosetta@home and LHC.

Your company has a firewall somewhere on the network, I think... Contact your systems administrator for this problem, because I think it's a problem concerning the network (-safety)... Some companies don't allow boinc to be run on company computers, because of certain policies....

asking is not really an option... How is it possible that it works on my other computer at work? It's behind the same firewall!?

The newer version of BOINC uses different ports which your firewall has blocked. Download the version of it that works on the other computer and that should solve your problem.

Just to be the blue meanie, if you do not have permission you should not be using Boinc.......
