It turn the work out OK just takes forever and a day to upload results thats when it feels like it.
Dont like to use the dial up for to long as I have cable on my other machine and dont like paying twice for the same service.


how long did it take to complete sending, and fetching the wu's, and what speed connection?

also config an ask before send rule, and when tinker wu is completed, add the -advmethods -forceasm -verbosity 9 flags another thing to do, is to delete the fahcore_65.exe "core" which is used by tinkers. w/ o it present, it'll reduce the likelyhood that a tinker will be downloaded. then restart folding, and the tinker will be uploaded, and more than likely, a gromacs wu will be downloaded.

edit: despite all that i've stated, i've just downloaded a tinker wu myself. i'll just run it, and do the ask before send config when i pause, and quit folding and redo the config at restart. see how this works. there are adv servers available. they might have set the servers to ignore the -advmethods switch, or the assinment server that handles that is overloaded (one server is- 20-30 net load is busy- it's over 300, so it's probably locked up).

NETLOAD tells how busy the server is by netstat (i.e. how many current connections the server is handling). Too many connections (eg more than 20-30) means that the server is heavily loaded.

why don't you just network your boxes together and share the cable connection between the 2...no need to pay for another connection :D

When finances allow I will set up a wireless network for my two Pc's and laptop.

Over the last couple of days I have been running my machines 24/7 and it has shown a great deal of difference in my workload, It also helped uploading 2 wu's that had been sitting in the queue for ages. One was from september! Gained 300+ points over the last couple of days as well.

in the mean time though just snag a cross over (x-over) cable and connect both NIC's. no need for a hub or anything. it's easy and cheap...works great!

This is my main PC nice and small but only has 1 RJ45 connector which I need for my cable modem. Hence the wireless idea!

Why not purchase a simple (and cheap) second NIC?
