    2020 * The easiest way to set up a BOINC server is to use a [wiki:VmServer BOINC server VM] that we've created for that purpose, with all the necessary software already installed. You can run this virtual machine using the [http://www.vmware.com/download/player/ VMWare player] on any Intel-based computer (Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X).  If you take this approach, skip the rest of this page.
