my twin was unable to start the client too. So he's running another distributed computing :( and he has a really nice machine.

I'd like to have more explanations.
Thanks.

It's hard to say, based only on this information. It's clear that the client cannot contact a server, but that's about all.

After a new installation, which yours is, the client should first try to register itself. Did you get any messages containing the words "REGISTER" and/or "REDIRECT"? If not, it looks as if you can't connect to any servers.

If you can't connect at all, I'd check a few things. First, look in processors/config.txt where you should find some URLs. Make sure that the DNS is working for you by trying to resolve the hostnames in the URL. You clearly have a Windows machine (or you wouldn't be using the GUI) so open a DOS box (also often called a CMD window) and use the nslookup command. If that works, do you have to use a proxy server to access web sites? If so, you will have to set the address of the proxy server, and proxy server's port if it's not the standard port 80, in the presently commented out lines in processors/config.txt

i've re-try the process, and now it's okay.
We started the client the July 1st, and even in the stat of July 2nd, there's no new machine into my account (junky).

Here's some more details about that new machine:
Code:
computerid laatkeur

guid M000EA699C0E6P0
and that machine is currently getting assignment from Texas' pool.

Maybe it will be in the July 3rd'stat, but i wonder why isnt in the 2nd.

Thanks.
