I want to enable BOINC milkway project on company PCs. I need to add rules to main firewall for Boinc, but our firewall works on IPs, so I need a list of BIONC and milkway servers IPs.
Can you help me??

While we appreciate the idea of more computers doing work...

Please don't use it on a company network without express permission from the Network Admin and Management

As to firewalls, we cannot give you advice on that as we are not familiar with what the company runs. You'll have to talk to your Network Admin for that.

Thank you

I'm a system Administrator. We are using PC's for e-learning purposes so 50 computers works all day long with no work to do. Our Firewall only allows access to selected IPs websites.
So I need to add this Addresses to white list.

Ok, since this is more of a BOINC issue and not a Milkyway-specific issue, please post your concern on the BOINC forum for further assistance.

Thank you.

Thank you.

On the contrary: once the BOINC client has been setup and configured by an authorised system administrator, it only needs to contact the servers of the project(s) it is attached to.

Any system administrator with network experience will quickly find:

C:\>ping milkyway.cs.rpi.edu

Pinging milkyway2.phys.rpi.edu [128.113.126.23] with 32 bytes of data:

and be able to identify upload and download servers similarly. That's the most basic of DNS lookups.

You will also need to know which ports to open for network access. Most BOINC projects use http on the standard port 80: some (notably WCG) use https on port 443. No other ports need to be opened.
