Why can't I get the console client to work properly?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Dual core machine so to use both cores i have to use the console client right? The thing is neither version of the console client (502 or 504) will download work units Tried using IE setting and NOT using IE settings (the only connection options i could find in config) They try to connect to the internet (Norton pops up a warning and i click "Allow this program access on all ports") but after that when i run the console program it just keeps giving me failed attempts saying "Could not connect to the work unit server " or some such . Graphic version works like a dream. Installs and is downloading workunits and working withing 30 seconds. Am i doing something obvious and stupid or is there some configuration i am not aware of?

Thanx in advance for any help

*Edit*
Additional information i am successfully assigned to some I.P. address (172 something) and get teh welcome message fom folding@home and still it wont give me work units :|

Maybe the server your client was trying to connect to is down. It happens.

When you set it up don't use the deadlineless setup, as all of those servers are down for the time being.
