Hi, I am a new user looking to start doing WUs for this project. I have read all the Getting Started guides and I think I have everything set up properly, but I am having an issue with my network settings. I am in a bit of a unique situation because I have this specific workstation set to connect BOINC to the internet once a day for roughly 30 minutes, which is when it uploads results and downloads new work units for the next day. I have my configs set so I download work for roughly 1 day in advance.

My question is whether this project requires an always-on internet connection to process work units. I am seemingly stuck unable to do any computation until the 30 minute window my connection is open to BOINC each night. Is there some way to run this project on a workstation with limited network access?

Yes, it needs constant network access

Sorry, but not yet
