Message 76538 - Posted: 4 Nov 2023, 3:45:38 UTC - in response to Message 76513.  

I was looking how to add certificates from post below, but in fact it was enough to update certificate authority (CA) certificates

sudo update-ca-certificates


Now I'm able to add project using both new and old links (Pop_OS 22.04)


There's a problem with the certificate chain on the new server.
If you want to get up and going before they get it replaced drop these 2 certs into your machine cert-store.
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIF3jnKkKj9
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIGoN
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

Did you put http://milkyway-new.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/

into the Project URL for Milkyway in the Add Project Wizard.
And give your correct login credentials.

Have you tried this:

sudo service boinc-client stop
sudo service boinc-client start

Restart your Boinc manager

Great job guys!.:D If you're updating to Windows 11
I doubt it, Boinc server only runs on geeky Linux. Unless you're that Russian project who managed to convert it.

Yes Win11 is much better than Win10 but just so you know Win11 does do some 'urgent' updates that under Win10 were classified as 'normal', so you might want to be aware of them too and no you can't just not do them unlesss you have the Pro version or are willing to go thru the Management Console or what we used to call Services.
Registry:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU

Add NoAutoUpdate and set to 1.

How do we add the project back in?

I seem to be getting an error message that says try again later
I didn't know there was a URL change, and the old one still works, I just left it as it is.

Ditto all of above with re-adding project have restarted, done ca-certificate update, tried adding with BAM and both URLs w/o BAM... always getting the try again message on this box. Will leave other boxes sitting as they were for now.

opeSuse Linux Tumbleweed
bpinc 7.24.1 x64
I deleted the milkyway project and changed the url to add -new, i also did an update-ca-certificates
but I still can not add the project. in each case i shutdown boinc and restarted it - nothing fixed the issue for me
Someone mentioned adding 2 certs but, where do they go and what name do i give them?
Is it going to fix this?

I've done all that and Linux Mint is still not able to communicate with their new server.

I've managed to add the project by copying across the Windows account XML file.

So the project is now visible in boincmgr, but communication with their new server is still not happening.

This does appear to be an authentication error at their server end.

Michael Blucher did you try ?
sudo update-ca-certificates


how did you install your client? is it deb package or snap/flatpack?
mine https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/jammy/amd64/boinc-client/7.18.1+dfsg-4

Yes I did
sudo update-ca-certificates
yields no updates

The client, in fact, all of Boinc, is installed by the package manager. Latest version. I even reinstalled it.
