Haven´t been able to upload a result in 48hrs now. It uploads a small portion and then grinds to a halt. If i "retry" the upload it´s the same, ul ~0.5% of total and then stops. A few WU´s were uploaded but then i recieved an error message from server. Don´t remember exactly what it said though.
Can´t see that there should be any problems or scheduled maintanence and since this is the only project i have issues with i thought i´d ask here!

The log says:
"Scheduler request failed: Couldn´t resolve host name"
"Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site"
"Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down."

Anyone with knowledge??[/quote]

That last part is the key..internet is okay but the project itself is having problems. Usually means a Server is not doing well and needs resetting, if you figure out where the project is based you can then figure out how long it might take for it to be fixed. Chances are it won't be fixed in the middle of the night, so come morning as long as it is an easy fix they will be right back up again. Sometimes a drive dies though and that can take a couple of days to fix, be patient, they WILL fix it.

Might be that the researchers were working on the server, and it was not reachable, however I can reach it now.

Try to update again (Boinc manager, advanced view) Transfers, Retry Now.

Should that not work, Clear your DNS resolver cache,
ipconfig -flushdns
and try to upload work again

Might also help to release and renew DNS info,
ipconfig -release
ipconfig -renew

If all else fails,
Turn your router off for a minute and your computer, then turn the router on, and then the computer.

Sometimes a loose Ethernet cable can also throw such error messages.
