I up-dated Norton antivirus and in the process Boinc Manager lost all info about my E@H work. When I try to re-attach to project, Boinc asks for HTTP server, port, username and password. I know my usename and password, but what is the server? Firefox attaches directly to the internet. How do I find my server and port?

Thanks

BOINC had a minor bug in it that was causing it to erroneously ask for proxy info. That bug has supposedly been fixed. Just download the newest version of BOINC and try again.
