Can you fold without having a constant internet connection? - Page 3

No, my other PC is running on XP.

That is cool with the loop back feature. I'm thinking of running F@H on a jump drive and now use this loop back feature on a stand alone machine not connected to the web. Once it's done number crunching, I can take it to another machine to UP/DN load the WU's.

Hi JadeMinor,

Thanks for the link and info...
I wonder if Linux, specifically Fedora 7 has this feature?

Take care and I copied the post for future reference!

Fedora 7 DOES install the loopback adapter by default. (as far as I know).

I appreciate your words Buick. Thanks. I really respect You, and Taeric, and Roscoe, and Gibson for your incredible dedication to the cause of protein folding.
Who knows. Maybe when they figure out why those little buggers don't fold properly, they'll be able to design drugs that prevent that from happening, and keep us from growing senile in our old age

Keep up the great work!

Why does my Xp fold properly without the loopback feature then? Is it something to do with the new SP3?

The loopback only kicks in when/if a person loses their internet connection. It tells the F@H client that you are still connected.
