Hi all, need a bit of advice here. I am going on holiday next week for 3 weeks, I am also running the following Boinc projects: Seti, CPDN and LHC. While I am away I would like to just run CPDN, however I am only on dial-up, so if I alter the following in my Primary Prefs to the following would this work to allow my trickles to go through as CPDN crunches away, or can I just update as normal when I get home ?

Primary preferences:

Do work only between the hours of (no restriction)
Leave applications in memory while preempted?
(suspended applications will consume swap space if \'yes\') yes

Confirm before connecting to Internet?
(matters only if you use a modem) yes

Disconnect when done?
(matters only if you use a modem) yes

Keep enough work on disk to last between 0 days

Will the above work to make a connection, send the trickle and then close the connection automatically or am I going about this the wrong/long/hard way?

Thanks in advance for any help !

You should probably disable network access, and let the trickles all flow at the end. There appear to be dialup problems, and while the settings you chose should work, they don't work at the moment.

Thanks John, wasn't sure if dial-up would work or not, will disable as you suggested and update on return.

Regards from Bonnie Scotland :-)
