I keep getting this in my error file:

2004-09-24 15:46:02 [---] Can't resolve hostname climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk (host not found or server failure)
2004-09-24 15:46:02 [climateprediction.net] scheduler init_op_project to http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc_cgi/cgi failed, error -113
2004-09-24 15:46:02 [climateprediction.net] Deferring communication with project for 1 minutes and 0 seconds

2004-09-24 19:29:03 [Predictor@home] scheduler init_op_project to http://predictor.scripps.edu/predictor_cgi/cgi failed, error -113
2004-09-24 19:29:03 [Predictor@home] init_op_project failed, error -113

Now you need not answer about Predictor@home, yet I imagine this is the same order as climateprediction.net.

If I look at my machine's data, it says:

Last time contacted server 23 Sep 2004 21:39:47 UTC

It used to trickle faster than that.

Error -113 is a gethostbyname() failure, and the additional information you're getting would seem to suggest a firewall or routing problem.

Is there a special port that has to be open for BOINC/climateprediction.net to work?

Hi, Ian,

FYI.

Found on a friend's P4 3.0, WinXP-SP2 -- but posted here because this is where the "Search" function for -113 steered me.

Following normal connect-operations for Trickles, this message appeared 5 times for this occurrence, then successful connection &amp; the machine returned to normal operation after that. No human intervention. (This is the fifth of the five -113 messages.)

I'd suspect a temporary routing problem at an ISP somewhere between your friend's system and Oxford Jim.

Makes sense. Thanks, Ian.
