 2012-02-01, 19:06 #2 rogue     "Mark" Apr 2003 Between here and the 177216 Posts PRPNet 5.0.5 Released For PRPNet 5.0.4: Fix crash in client when wwww near miss is found. For PRPNet 5.0.5: Fix bug (introduced in 5.0) that causes client to send Twin and SG workunits back to the server even though the client didn't have to do the test for them. Fix bug that allows users to not specify any servers in prpclient.ini file. Change "genefercuda-boinc" to "genefercuda" as they are technically the same program and the server doesn't recognize "genefercuda-boinc". These changes are only in the client. You can d/l 5.0.5 from here.
 2012-02-08, 16:38 #3 shauge   Jan 2006 Stavanger, Norway 5 Posts Problems getting new work from server I do work for the PSP project on various machines. One machine stopped getting new work and closed down without any message in the log files so I ran it from a command window (win7). This is a rather long story and I and several team mates have tried a number of ways to get this machine to work normally again, without success. Can you explain what this error message really mean? I am fairly sure that it is client side and not server side. I run 5.0.4. Here it the command window output when it finish a work unit and tries to get new work.

I believe that server is running a 4.1 server. You probably need to use an older version of the client.

I'll try to debug this later today to see if my assumption is correct. Even if my assumption is correct, there is the potential that the client has a bug in it.

The server is ver. 4.0.6, but the reason I think it is client side, is because a lot of other machines seems to work great and because I used Wireshark to moitor the ethernet commuincation. It didn't look like the problem came from the server, even though the text in the error message indicates that.
I would be grateful if you could check what this error message really means. Which might help me get this machine to work again.

FYI, in case it helps: at NPLB we still have a number of servers (mostly private ones, but one public) on 4.1.4 and they've all worked fine, so far as I can tell, with 5.0.x clients. I'm not sure how 4.0.6 would behave; we do have one remaining private server on 4.0.6 (my own, ironically enough) but I haven't used it since before 5.0.x was released.

BTW: I do have copies on hand of most previous PRPnet versions, if you (or anyone else) need one. I've uploaded 4.0.6 here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/gnq1wm

Is that a private or public server? If it is a private server, then I strongly recommend that you upgrade to at least 4.3.7 or 5.0.5. If it is a public server, set debuglevel=1 and send me the log in an e-mail (not a PM) when this error occurs.

Although things might be working well on 4.1.4, I hope that you are considering upgrading to 4.3.7 (or 5.0.5). Although you haven't reported any issues with that version, 4.3.7 has bug fixes and much prettier HTML.

 2012-02-08, 23:15 #9 rogue     "Mark" Apr 2003 Between here and the 2·3,001 Posts I got the log and will fix the problem tomorrow. In the interim using a 4.x client is a valid workaround. Note that the two servers in question are both 4.0.6. Since both servers are almost out of work, I recommend upgrading them before loading new work into them.

Indeed, upgrading ports 9000 and 12000 to 5.0.5 is high on my to-do list. While they have been working stably with 4.1.4, it is rapidly aging (and does have that annoying cosmetic bug where team and client are reversed on the web pages). The rest of the public servers are already on 4.3.6, though it should be straightforward to upgrade them all to 5.0.5 as well while I'm at it. (The private servers, of course, are scattered across various versions, depending on when they were set up and how recently they've been used...the oldest is 4.0.6, with a few on 4.1.4 and one on 4.3.6. Only two are in active use at the moment, running 4.1.4 and 4.3.6 respectively. They're somewhat of a lower priority but upgrading them is nonetheless on the list long term. )

These:

are still 4.0.6 and still appear to be active.
