In my preferences I have stated "connect about every 1 day" - yet it connects far more often than this, in fact many times a day. These frequent dial-ups often interfere with my other work when using the computer. Is there any way to avoid this?

Until BOINC improves, I think it's only possible to have better control by ticking 'Disable BOINC network access',
and unticking it when you want to upload a trickle. This is how I manage it.

I confess I gave up using BOINC entirely for a few months mainly because of this problem. Maybe most users are lucky enough to have always-on Broadband, so the needs of the few of us who can only get dial-up access are likely to be overlooked. (One of the disadvantages of living in an isolated rural community)!

Sorry John,
Perhaps I should have said that I'm also on dialup. But I'm still using BOINC 4.05, so it may be different for you.
Just finished another model, and got hadsm 4.10 with the new parameter set.

Don't forget besides your boinc preferences, windows has a setting for auto dial up that might be causing this. Also after changing boinc preference right click on project window climatepredition and click update for the preference to become effective.

Try to test Boinc by setting up as run based on preferences instead of run always and vice versa.

Boinc may be trying to fetch the preferences stored in your climate prediction account on the internet.

Internet Windows preferences may be the controlling factor in Run always mode.

Remember where there is a will there is a way......

I have found BOINC does more crunching faster the longer it is between updates.
So I keep tabs on and manually upload my computers that use a modem.

Hope this helps....
