I see it worked perfectly... 10.000 points in the bank!
One quad core is more than many others on this project run.

Hi drakkar.

It's fully possible, you'll have to set up your own PRPNet-server. In other words, one of the computers has to run the server software, but I see no problem with it running the client aswell.

What OS are you running? I should be able to give you a step by step guide to setting up prpserver, because Sloth helped me set up one a few days ago.

BTW, I have a standing offer at the NPLB and CRUS projects to run private PRPnet servers for anyone who's interested; drakkar67, if you're interested, I'd be glad to extend this offer to you as well.

I have Windows XP on the main computer. I also have some Vista and MacOSX (Intel) computers.

OK, for the server:

Download "Greeting.txt", "prpserver.exe", "prpserver.ini" and "prpserver.delay" from here: http://pgllr.mine.nu/PRPNet/source/prpnet/server/
Save these to a folder on the computer you want to run the server software on. Then you'll need to edit prpserver.ini. That file is UNIX style, so do not use notepad to edit. I suggest you use PSPad or Notepad++.

Configure the following fields:
email=your email address
port=7101
servertype=1
savefrequency=0
doublecheck=0

Leave the rest as they are.

Now you'll have to create the candidates lists from your ranges. The files you have reserved have an llr style format like this:
Code:
1000000000:P:0:2:257
79309 4806326
You'll have to remove the first line and change the format so it looks like this:
Code:
79309*2^4806326+1 N
Merge all your remaining candidates into a file called "prpserver.candidates" and save it in the same directory as the other files. Start prpserver.exe.

For the clients, you can download them from the top of this thread.
In the prpclient.ini, remove all lines that start with "server=" and add this one instead:

Code:
PSPtest:100:1:IP:7101
Replace "IP" with the IP of your server and you should be good to go.

Actually, it is much easier than that. Change the first line to:
Code:
ABC $a*2^$b+1
and rename that file as prpserver.candidates. Then start the server.

The server will then load the file and convert it to the correct format.

If you have multiple files, remove the first line from each file, concatenate them together into prpserver.candidates, then add the ABC line I gave as the first line of that file. Then you can start the server.

If you have a server already running, you can use the prpadmin tool to add candidates from an ABC file to the server.

I had no idea it could be done like that, thanks. Lennart wrote the same thing to me in a private message aswell.

The reason I did not suggest the prpadmin-tool is that I've had problems with it on Windows. It looks like it imports the file, but the new candidates are not added. I did not want to suggest a tool that I could not get working myself to a self-proclaimed computer illiterate. :)

If you are having problems with the admin tool, send me an e-mail with details of the issue and I will look into it.

Just to make sure I'm clear enough... I did not mean there was something wrong with the tool, I just meant that I could not get it working. There is a big difference. ;-)

Also, I sent you an email explaining the issue.

According to Louie of Seventeen or Bust, Jean Penné is working on a new version of llr based on a newer gwnum library: http://www.free-dc.org/forum/showthr...762#post139762

I'm so glad we're running PRPNet now so we can start using the new llr as soon as it's ready! :-)
