Hi @all

I received:

Einstein@Home: Notice from BOINC
You are attached to this project twice. Please remove projects named Einstein@Home, then add https://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/

 

But I see the project just 1 time in my account.

What does this mean?

 

Best regards

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

...and WELCOME to Einstein@Home!

Have you noticed this thread?

Hi everyone,

We changed our project's so-called "master-URL" to HTTPS (instead of HTTP) to further secure BOINC's initial communication with our project. Don't worry, even before this change the BOINC client communication was automatically upgraded to use HTTPS by our web server. This change now means this extra round-trip isn't required anymore so it will just slightly speed up the communication.

Please note that older clients might not recognize this change automatically if you're already attached to our project. In that case we recommend you update your BOINC client to a minimum version of 7.16.20. All BOINC versions starting with 7.16.20 support the automatic transition from HTTP to HTTPS on the next communication ("update") with the project's server.

Cheers,
Oliver


This could be your issue.  Just a thought...

If you go ahead and delete your existing Einstein@Home project, close down your BOINC Manager, and then reopen the BOINC Manager and re-install Einstein@Home, you should be okay.

Hmm,  Debian Bullseye

Hmm,  Debian Bullseye (without GUI) says:

boinc-client is already the newest version (7.16.16+dfsg-1)

Do I need to switch from http

Do I need to switch from http to https?

If yes, how do I do it manually?

You should not need to switch it from "http" to "https" manually if you do as I suggested in my previous post.

Are you running Windows?  MAC?  Linux?  It is different for each OS and your computers are hidden, so it is nearly impossible to to tell.

.....[EDIT].....

In the message from Oliver, it said:  "All BOINC versions starting with 7.16.20 support the automatic transition from HTTP to HTTPS on the next communication ("update") with the project's server." 

You have said:  "boinc-client is already the newest version (7.16.16+dfsg-1)", so you do not apply.

Do as I said and get back to me.

FYI I think it is BOINC

FYI I think it is BOINC server's fault.  The project attach http:// and the project return https:// seem to be checked against each other and of course they don't match and you get the attached twice message.  You will still get work.  So if it bothers, set no new tasks, wait for the queue to empty, detach and reattach https://  .  Message gone.

As to O/S yes, Mac, yes Linux, yes Windows, I've see it on all three on different projects.

Stop Boinc.

Edit the <master_url> .... </master_url> string in client_state.xml and also in account_einstein.phys.uwm.edu.xml to add the missing 's'.  This string occurs once in each file.

Then restart BOINC.

 

EDIT:  In case it's not completely clear, the ... above is the E@H URL.  If you have multiple projects, you would have other master URLs.  So to avoid them, include 'einstein' in the search string to be used and protect the '//' part of the string with back-slashes so that the editor understands the string properly.

I wrote a small bash script to do the edits over a large number of hosts.  After stopping BOINC, here is the bit that does the actual work:-

    acct=account_einstein.phys.uwm.edu.xml
    statef=client_state.xml
    str="<master_url>http:\/\/einstein"
        sed -i "/$str/s/p:/ps:/" $acct
        sed -i "/$str/s/p:/ps:/" $statef

The stream editor (sed) makes it easy to do remotely (eg. over ssh) or locally from the command line.  The above commands assume you're already in the directory containing both the account and state files.

Cheers,
Gary.
