Thanks to the https://letsencrypt.org/ initiative the server runs since some days https with a free letsencrypt certificate. We will see if in 2 month the automatic recertification works.

With this new https access does it mean that older Boinc clients (such as 6.12.43) on Linux are now unable to access this site?

I detached and re-attached as I was unable to download any work due to "Missing Input Files".
This however made no difference, so I restarted BOINC Client, still unable to get work.
It says "Project Communication Failed" "Project Servers maybe Temporarily Down".

I can not attach to this project with this computer any more.

I detached and re-attached my other Linux computer running BOINC Client 7.4.25 and had no problems contacting the server and getting work.

If it does need a latter BOINC client version then you will be at least one computer down as I don't need to change this one just yet and other projects (it is running over a dozen) work without issue.

In fact http should also work. I didn't disable it.

No, I am unable to add back my computer with either https:// or http://

With the http:// I do get to the second step when attaching my computer where I am told you need an existing account or an invitation code, but on entering my password I get the same error message as before that the "Project Communication Failed" "Project Servers maybe Temporarily Down".

I don't get that far with https:// it goes start to the error.

Thank you for the quick responses Yoyo.

I tried again with just the http:// and was able to connect to the server and attach my computer.
It has downloaded all project files and also a new work unit.

Thanks again for your help.
