Hi

I have an old BURP account, used to crunch here in another life, I just decided to test it again on my office PC, so I attach and at the beginning it seems to work (project added to the list) but then

10/11/2016 21:34:21 BURP Master file download succeeded
10/11/2016 21:34:27 BURP Sending scheduler request: Project initialization.
10/11/2016 21:34:28 BURP Requesting new tasks
10/11/2016 21:34:29 Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
10/11/2016 21:34:29 BURP Scheduler request failed: Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with known CA certificates
10/11/2016 21:34:30 Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.


Is this really a temporary issue ? is there something wrong at my side ?

Thanks

I have an old BURP account

Then you've probably didn't upgrade it to Beta when it was necessary some years ago.
There used to be a link earlier to do this yourself but it was removed some time ago. Janus has to do that manually himself now, so you have to wait.

Thanks for the answer, though I really don't understand what it means to "migrate to beta" a boinc project ??

How can I ask for this anyway ?

Some non-native english users didnt catch the "urge" to, and whole consequences of not, opting-in the beta.

And some "casual" users as well :)

My 2 cts

Thanks for your consideration

No this is something else - it seems related to BOINC's certificate authority issues and our recent tests with HTTPS communication.
What happens if you hit "Reset Project" on the project tab now?

And if you detach from the project and re-attach with http://burp.renderfarming.net ?

One technical detail that may be important (?) : I do this under a win7 virtual machine (on my iMac), in order to "feed" my office PC where boinc is not allowed to access internet (very restrictive proxy).

I've been doing this for years successfully with CPDN, WUProp...

Well, that's of course an important detail. If this host is restricted to internet access you can only use it when the restriction is open for access.
Even if you do it for years, are you even allowed to run BOINC on this host? You can get trouble if you aren't, you know? Internet security isn't the same anymore.

I said the proxy is restrictive, that's all what I said.

The technical point here is regarding the fact the logs I'm showing above are coming from a boinc running in a win7 virtual machine.

Yeah be careful and make sure that you are allowed to do that. You wouldn't be the first person to loose their job over something like that.

Anyways, if you are certain that it is ok: Check that you have the newest BOINC version - specifically make sure that you have the newest version of ca-bundle.crt in C:/Program Files/BOINC. People from WCG had the same issue a little while ago.
Maybe you need a fix from 7.6.33.

Then I think we have the answer : I cannot install any software here, I use an old (6.x) Boinc portable version that doesn't need any setup program.

Never mind then, I'll burp in another life ;)

Thanks for the support.
