Hi list, I’ve installed boinc-client and boinc-manager from epel. After starting boinc-client with systemctl when I try to connect from boincmgr I get “Unable to connect to boinc client”.

I’ve added to unit file –allow_remote_gui_rpc

and on netstat I get:

tcp 0 0*
LISTEN 4762/boinc_client

On this machine there aren’t iptables rules

I’ve also added my current user to boinc group without success.

I’ve tried also to run boincmgr from root without success.

Reading from I’ve not found any usefull config parameters to save in

Selinux is Disabled.

I’ve tried also to run from a root shell:


Running the manager from root I can connect to the client but from simple user I cannot.

So I don’t understand where is the problem. What I can do to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

  • Hi list, I’ve added a link for gui_rpc_auth.cfg on my home and I can run manager from my user.

    There are other ways?

    Hi Darr247, I’m sorry, I’m using CentOS7.

    I’ve solved, as written in my last mail, linking
    /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg in my home.

    Thanks for your reply.
