Ok, what did I get into? [img]/forum/wink.gif[/img]
My first cruncher has started (tada) but, I am totally 404 on what the heck I'm doing.
Everything is running on the default settings and I don't know what they mean. Anyone crunching live in the Los Angeles area? [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
I entered my personal email - am I supposed to use distributed.net, or what?
Am I crunching for SysOpt? Downloaded the client from www.sysopt/rc5team.html
You guys are going to have to explain this to me like I'm a 3-year old.
~~edit: puts the heat on my CPU too, it just took a ±14* leap [img]/forum/frown.gif[/img]

Yeap its going to put the chip to the test! Thats why its such a great stabablity test for us overclockers aswell!.......well on to the good stuff!
Ohh I just thought of something...You are probably using the "CLI" client huh?
Well for the email address you will want to use your own. This is how they track who gets credit for the blocks.
for the most part you can use the default settings except for the Email address, the Keyserver and port# (should set these to 184.108.40.206 and 8080) and then set what type of internet connection you have (default is always connected) but you can set it up to only fetch/flush the buffers when you are online if you are on a dailup connection. and once you show up in the "stats" on virus' proxy page make sure you have "regestered" to be on the SYSOPT team.
If you have any other questions we will be happy to help you!
I'm using the distributed.net RC5DES Client.
Is that the correct one?
6) Keyserver <-> client, then,
3) Keyserver port: typed 220.127.116.11 + enter;
Port: 8080 + enter.
I'll check Virus' page in 24 hrs. I hope I'm listed!
Thanks 10^2 Mntsnow [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
Yep. looks just fine! Here is the link to Team SysOpt's stats at the bottom is a link to help you get registered as an offical team member. stats.distributed.net/rc5-64/tmsummary.php3?team=9742
When you click on the link above, it will prompt you for your email and password. You can get your password sent to you from Dnet, only after you show up on their stats.
As of 5:11AM here in SO CA, stats are still down on Dnet so you cannot check to see if you showed up yet.
Once you do, you will have a personal sats page, which at the bottom of that page you have the option of having your password sent to you. It will be sent you via email.
Hope this helps! [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
You need to set your buffers to 500 each so you won't run out and the client starts cracking "random" blocks. Random block crunching is not good and you might not get credit for most of them. I think the default is 10-that's not big enough unless you fetch/flush often. You'll get good enough at this thing to start answering our questions in a week or so. Good luck [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
Welcome to the team.
Looks like everyone else has answered your question, but I notice you said you would check Virus' in 24 hours.
Hist actually updates every 30mins, that is why we all like it so much. [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
Hi guys - Thanks for your help! .. more needed [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
I tried your link above Mntsnow, but after signing in, it didn't go thru and then I tried again and there was an error processing my request... (clicked on SysOpt - Join this Team) Is it still down? or is it me?
hey izzzy12k - SoCA [img]/forum/wink.gif[/img]
reddog - ahhh! that would be #11 - Packet Fetch/Flush? set to 500?
Thanks for the Virus info, Brendan.

Your "name" is actually your full email address not just your name. the "password" is the one that Dnet should have mailed to you. I just check the link and it is now up!!
If you're uploading blocks, you haven't shown up on the pproxy. You may want to check to be sure where your blocks are going.
Just a comment on the heat issue. A normal processor should be able to take the heat that maximum processing produces. The only time I ran into a heat issue with RC5 was when the a/c went out in my computer room. I was running 3 333 p2s oc'd to 500 (I'm so ashamed [img]/forum/redface.gif[/img]). When the temp in the room rose to 87 degrees, I started to have lockups so I had to shut them down until the a/c was repaired. However, I was running 4 other computers at rated speeds in the same room with no problems.
Anyway, just wanted to alert you that if you are directing to the pproxy, you haven't shown up yet.

I haven't received email from DNet. Why not?
My correct email is configured correctly in the General Client Options.
Appreciate all the replies. [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
My system is running warmer than usual, but no problems. (knockwood)
~~edit. ok I tried something, rt clik, update buffers and it says it sent 3 packets to server. Says it "connected distributed.net", and under that, line says: "The keyserver says 'I'm in a New York state of mind (sedriss)'" ???

What email are you using on your client?, You haven't shown up on Dnet either, at least not as email@example.com. [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
That's the email I'm using izzzy. Darn, maybe I should uninstall it and start over.
Note my edit ^ tho, I just updated the fetch/flush, will I show up now? [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
The keyserver says 'I'm in a New York state of mind (sedriss)'"
means you are sending directly to D.net
and not virus' pproxy.
thus it could take until tomorrow sometime before you show up on the d.net list.
When you send to virus' proxy you will get the message:
The perproxy says: "Burrb! Ahh, that hit the spot."
The procedure for signing up for the team was confusing to me so I thought I'd mention it since no one else has.
You send your blocks to D.net using your e-mail address. The cutoff time for posting is 6pm CST. After this time, it takes anywhere from 4-24 hours to see the results. When they finally post the results for the day, look yourself up by e-mail address in the search box. When you pop up, at the bottom there is a I forgot my password message. Click on this link and D.net will e-mail you the password they have created for you. When you have this password, you can join the Sysopt team.
Sending blocks to the pproxy is more fun as it updates frequently. It also gives a good approximation of how many blocks you sent to D.net for those times when they short change the block count.
Hope this helps.
