Thread: BOINC not connecting

  1. #1

    Default BOINC not connecting

    I installed boinc-client and boing manager and the manager is not connection to boinc. The boinc-client is running:

    systemctl status boinc-client
    ● boinc-client.service - Berkeley Open Infrastructure Network Computing Client
    Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/boinc-client.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
    Active: active (running) since Mon 2019-11-18 08:33:55 MST; 34min ago
    Docs: man:boinc(1)
    Process: 20713 ExecStopPost=/bin/rm -f $BOINC_BOINC_DIR/lockfile (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
    Process: 20698 ExecStop=/usr/bin/boinccmd --quit (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
    Main PID: 20714 (boinc)
    Tasks: 20 (limit: 4915)
    CGroup: /background.slice/boinc-client.service
    ├─20714 /usr/bin/boinc --dir /var/lib/boinc
    └─20914 /bin/sh /usr/bin/VBoxManage --version

    I tried also the command line and received the following:

    boinccmd -p abc123
    can't connect to local host

    Next I also tried the following command:

    nc -v localhost 31416
    nc: connect to localhost port 31416 (tcp) failed: Connection refused
    nc: connect to localhost port 31416 (tcp) failed: Connection refused


    How can I solve this issue? Any one has any ideas what to do next?

    thank you

    "Connection refused" means that the connection is actively rejected... Which generally means that your firewall is blocking.
    Solution:
    Open the port (or defined service)

    Hi and welcome to the Forum

    Why is this running?

    Code:
    └─20914 /bin/sh /usr/bin/VBoxManage --version
    All working fine here in a KVM machine with Nvidia GPU...

    I normally just run the boinc-gui command...

    Code:
    systemctl status boinc-client.service 
    
    ● boinc-client.service - Berkeley Open Infrastructure Network Computing Client
       Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/boinc-client.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
