I can say with pretty large conviction that it won't solve it for everyone - only those who can connect by just re-starting BOINC. There are those of us who need to reboot to be able to connect each time the IP has changed, and for us it won't help.

In that case, it's not BOINC's fault.

I can fix it by quitting/restarting BOINC. But 5.8.3 does not solve the problem for me.

nope, it's not, which was partly my point

What if you just do a "ipconfig /flushdns"? Or does BOINC save the IP address elsewhere?

In WinXP, at least, you can just right click the network connection icon in the SysTray, and choose "Repair", and it does the same thing. (I have to do that when seeding some Linux ISOs on BitTorrent. Too many clients hitting at once chokes it off.)

I will know the answer to that later today. ipconfig /flushdns followed by ipconfig /registerdns helped BOS to display DepSpid scheduler correctly as online (way better than rebooting ), but I did a restart of boinc afterwards, so I'm not sure yet if it does the thing for boinc as well.

ok, the ipconfig /flushdns thingy works for windows only, and you still have to restart boinc - but it still beats rebooting

If BOINC is running as a service and you don't run any rarely/never checkpointing projects, it might also be more convenient to write some scheduled task to automatically stop BOINC, flush the DNS, and then restart it.

Mon, 30 Apr 2007 --- Account creation open
The account creation for DepSpid is now open for everyone and will stay open at least for a while. All pre-registered accounts have been created in the last weeks and there are now already more than 500 registered users.


Woo-hoo for everyone who always wanted to attach!
