LLRnet over proxy?
Hi all,

I recently tried running llrnet at work (with permission) to participate in the Riesel sub project. But it seems not to be able to connect through our company proxy (which requires user authentication).
I will definitely not get additional rules added to the proxy rules by the IT responsibles, so I ask you whether you can give me any information on how to get LLRnet online.

If you don't know a way to do so, I'd like to ask whether I can reserve a range for PRPing a Riesel candidate. I do have 4 machines (3 GHz HT) which can run those tests nearly all day. They have been used for BOINC projects before, but I'd like to minimize the overall traffic of the DC projects running on company machines as we're charged at high rates for traffic. And as some of our team mates from participate in this project and already discovered new prime numbers, I'm eager to put my name on one of them, too :).
Especially I hope to have very few maintenance tasks to do once those machines run primality tests.

Ciao, Michael.

As far as i know there is no way to run llrnet with a proxy.

But there should be no problem to reserve you a k or two.
If you can tell me which one you want( and post me a mail address)
i can send you the files you need as input for llr.exe

But i must know the information before sunday evening as i will be
out of town again next week.

I don't have any preference for a special k. My mail adresse is my nick at Can you send me a short instruction on the best strategy to distribute the search on the 4 machines together with those files you mentioned?

I guess we can discuss any further issues via mail, or on the RKN forum or chat. :)

Ciao, Michael.

i have reserved k=5374 on the riesel side of our effort for you.

I will send you an email some time this weekend to answer your questions.

Shall i put you on team rechenkraft for the stats?

Thanks for doing so. Yes, I'd like to be put in the team for the stats. Maybe you should ask GrafZahl the same, he's also teamless in the stats.

Ciao, Michael.
