News from Berkeley

June 16, 2005 Outage Notice. We will be having an outage tomorrow in order to add an index to the result table in the seti/boinc database. This index will be used to better track client errors. The outage will begin at 17:30 UTC and may last up to 2 hours.

Deutsche Boinc Informationen

SETI@home Classic endet am 15.12.2005

16.11.2005 - Das SETI@home Projektteam in Berkeley hat auf seinen Webseiten das offizielle Ende des SETI@home Classic Projekts am 15.12.2005 bekannt gegeben.

Zusammen mit einem Dank dafür, diese Projekt zu etwas Bedeutendem geamacht zu haben, bittet das Team die Teilnehmer - die dies bisher nicht getan haben - auf SETI@home mit BOINC umzusteigen und das Projekt weiterhin zu unterstützen.

Die Statistiken werden mit dem Abschalten (15.12.05) eingefroren, aber weiterhin im Web abrufbar sein.

History / Old News (german)

18.11.2003 - Das Entwicklerteam in Berkeley hat heute die BOINC Version 2.10 und Astropulse 2.11 für den Betatest freigegeben. In diesem Zusammenhang haben sie unter anderem einen Link zum SETI@home/BOINC Sourcecode auf der Downloadseite eingefügt. Die Ver÷ffentlichung erfolgt unter GNU General Public License und ist ein Meilenstein in der Geschichte von SETI@home, das damit zu Open Source Software wird.

19.11.2003 - Zwar hat gestern der öffentliche Betatest begonnen, doch schon noch kurzer Zeit musste der Anmeldeserver die weiße Fahne aufziehen. Zunächst wurde die Anmeldung wieder gesperrt. Heute am Abend wird es voraussichtlich einen neuen Anlauf mit geänderten Datenbankeinstellungen geben.

Source Code

Berkeley has released seti_boinc source code under the GNU/GPL today! SETI becomes open source.

The seti_boinc source code is being released under the GNU General Public License.

In order to compile and link seti_boinc you will need to download and compile boinc first.

Untar/unzip both boinc and seti_boinc in the same directory on your system. Configure and make boinc, then configure and make seti_boinc.

If everything compiles OK you will find the application in the seti_boinc/client directory. You can test the application with the included workunit. In some directory, copy in both the application and seti_boinc/client/test_workunits/reference_work_unit.sah. Rename reference_work_unit.sah to work_unit.sah. Run the application in standalone mode. For example:

setiathome-2.06.sparc-sun-solaris2.7 -standalone

There are a LOT more projects nowadays. Please update this page, refer to ALL Boinc projects.

Allowing remote access

If you want to run multiple command-line clients on your LAN and check their status from ONE host with a single gui, Boinc lets you allow remote access. In the BOINC directory of the client to be controlled, create a file "remote_hosts.cfg" with the IP of the computer that should be allowed to connect. In the GUI Boinc Manager you can then "Select Computer" and connect to it.

Boinc Manual File Menu

If you need to open your firewall for the remote control you need this port:

1043	tcp/udp	 boinc-client	BOINC Client Control
