Thanx, I even found your answer on the main page of http://mersenne.org/ Under: "Other Recent News "Error 2252. Some users that have a proxy server between their computer and "mersenne.org are reporting this error. Version 23.8 corrects this problem by using full "URLs instead of relative URLs. Visit the download page to upgrade the client. The bad news is that I run Linux and there is not version 23.8, does this mean all Linux users are having the same problem?

Aug 2002 Yeehaw, FL 32×823 Posts You can use full URLs in Linux 23.5 by adding the line "UseFullURL=1" to primenet.ini - you'll probably have to create that file.  2004-05-03, 01:36 #8 nevillednz May 2004 118 Posts I created the file, and even put UseFullURL=1 into primenet.ini and prime.ini, saddly no luck.$ ls -lt *.ini -rw-rw-r-- 1 nevilled nevilled 215 May 3 09:06 local.ini -rw-rw-r-- 1 nevilled nevilled 230 May 3 08:32 prime.ini -rw-rw-r-- 1 nevilled nevilled 13 May 3 08:32 primenet.ini -rw-rw-r-- 1 nevilled nevilled 0 May 1 10:50 worktodo.ini $grep UseFullURL=1 *.ini prime.ini:UseFullURL=1 primenet.ini:UseFullURL=1$ ./mprime -d Mersenne number primality test program version 23.5 Sending result to server for exponent 18080627 ERROR: Primenet error 2252 The FAQ at http://www.entropia.com/ips/faq.html may have more information.

(Or I could change LastEndDatesSent=1081562188 to a smaller number to speed this up?) I also note that the problem only started on the 12th or March. Prior to this the "client" mprime program did not log any server connection problems/messages (even after several months of running). It is possible that something was changed on the server that triggered this problem? Possibly the mprime "server side" communication service was changed, or maybe you installed a WindowsNT service pack that was patching one of Microsofts famous virus/worm holes? (Which works so well that NO relative URLs work anymore...)

 2004-05-03, 06:35 #9 Pablo the Duck     Dec 2003 Team China 2×33 Posts I've been using Mprime 2.35 on Libranet 2.7, 2.8 and Slackware 9.0 - kernel versions 2.4.20 and 2.6.4 (which I abandoned because it ran slightly slower) - since last September without any connection problems. (Well, OK, occasionally the server may have been unavailable for a couple of hours.) I've used it over external dial up modem and via ADSL. I've run it through a firewall. I've never had to tweak the settings. (So I'm probably not going to be much help ) I take it you can use the box for normal internet access so you know it's not just a dodgy cable or card?
 2004-05-03, 14:14 #10 Prime95 P90 years forever!     Aug 2002 Yeehaw, FL 32·823 Posts The 23.8 sources are not available for download. We can verify that UseFullURL is working by adding the line Debug=1 to primenet.ini. Then post the debug output from prime.log. I don't think we'll learn anything new, but that's all I can think of. The only other alternative is to download the sources and build 23.5 with debugging on. If you have any suggested improvements to the primenet.c file I'd love to hear them.
 2004-05-03, 14:26 #11 nevillednz   May 2004 118 Posts dodgy cable or card? Well... my ISP isnt an angel, but I am on the net right now.. no problems. If U look at the logs the problem only comes up after a month or so when the Mprime client tries (is due) to check in with the mprime server. And from that failure it tries every hour, and gets a failure. My thought is maybe it is to do with the phase of the calculation.
