In the BOINC Manager client 4.24 there is Select Computer... under the File menu. What is it for?
I tried to connect to client running on other computer but I saw from the Messages that the connection was refused.

In fact, I would like to have option to connect to other clients (computers) and be able to see their progress.

You need to create a remote_hosts.cfg file, or specify the -allow_remote_gui switch on the commandline. The remote_hosts.cfg file is prefered as it limits the remote hosts to those that are specified in the file. One host per line, either the name of the host, or the IP address. This file needs to be in the BOINC directory of the machine to be controlled.

It

It works!
Thanks.

Unfortunately, BOINC manager shows only one connected client (computer).
It would be great if you could have control over ALL of your machines running BOINC from one manager at the same time and also see the progres, messages, transfers....
