Hello,
As you all know, it has become necessary to delete MW and then add it back on all you machines. So far, I have done this on 3 machines of various versions of Windows without any problems. However, I have been trying to get my linux machine to add it back and it keeps giving me the error,

Fri 03 Nov 2023 07:04:20 PM EDT | | Fetching configuration file from https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/get_project_config.php
Fri 03 Nov 2023 07:04:21 PM EDT | | Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
Fri 03 Nov 2023 07:04:22 PM EDT | | Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.

Is there something wrong with MW or is it something else? I've tried it several times over the last couple of hours.
Thanks,
Allen

PS oh ya, it also says, Failed to add, try again later.
Also, on Boinc Tasks, it says Error-184

What they are saying in another thread is that it's a certificate chain problem and the IT people will be back in again on Monday

Hey, thanks a bunch. I guess I didn't see it in the other areas. I'll have to look harder next time.
Thanks again,
Allen
