BOINC's internal list of project addresses (when you're adding a project) still has your old URL, https://einsteinathome.org/

I'm currently responsible for maintaining that list (in preparation for its inclusion in the next version of BOINC to be released), and as far as I know that's the current address. It's certainly the same as we're advised to use on https://einsteinathome.org/join, and when a rogue typo slipped into the list we're preparing for next time, project staff from here approved my correction back to that URL.

What makes you think that it's wrong?

When I join a computer to

When I join a computer to Einstein using that address, I get this message from the server:

Eintein@Home Fri 30/03/2018 3:57:39 pm This project is using an old URL. When convenient, remove the project, then add http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/

I get no message when I add the URL it tells me to.

Thanks. I'll check that with the project staff before we let the new list out of the door.

The URL should be https://einsteinathome.org, but I don't know why the BOINC client complains about it. I'll ping the people at AEI at some point.

I've just got back to this

I've just got back to this question myself, and tried attaching a test machine using the wizard and https://einsteinathome.org/ - the machine was happy to do


02/04/2018 16:34:10 | | Fetching configuration file from https://einsteinathome.org/get_project_config.php

and didn't show any error messages in the log. That's with Windows 7 and BOINC v7.9.3

It would be helpful if you could throw any light on recent changes.

Testing a machine that isn't

Testing a machine that isn't running Einstein currently:

Windows 10, BOINC 7.8.3, Boinctasks 1.7.5, both say they're the latest version.

I got the error message when attaching using Boinctasks from another machine (I control 4 machines from one using Boinctasks).

I then detached and tried again directly with BOINC on that machine itself and didn't get the message.  Is Boinctasks doing something silly?  It says it's going to use "https://einsteinathome.org/" the same as BOINC.  And why is the message from the server telling me to go somewhere else if that one is correct?

This comes up from time to

This comes up from time to time and people are rightly confused about this. Here is the thing. When attaching to a project through the BOINC Manager the URL to use is https://einsteinathome.org/ because the manager will contact the project and get the actual master URL before it sends the attach command to the Client.

When attaching to a project via boinccmd or another kind of RPC (meaning account managers or tools like boinctasks) you need to use the master URL from https://einsteinathome.org/get_project_config.php manually. This was reported to at least BAM! in the past but they can't separate the website URL (https://einsteinathome.org) from the master URL (http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/) on the site so they need to use the latter in all places in order to avoid the old url message.

Then you need to tell

Then you need to tell Boinctasks to fix it, or fix it yourselves (it doesn't happen on any other project - are you the only one with two URLs?  Is that really necessary?)

So, is

So, is the http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/ a new address?

I did have it for years, but there was a problem with BAM so i removed it and added https://einsteinathome.org and now the client say it is old address. Still if i got to that new address it redirect back to here.

So confusing.

It does not matter which url

It does not matter which url I use they both give me the message that "Failed to add Project" Please Try Again Later.

This has been going on for many hours.

Only on one computer that used to be connected till I had a computer issue last year, so trying to add that computer back onto project but can't.
