If the computers don't have a fixed IP set than you should use the MAC address and remove the IP address.
You should set up the remote computer in BOINC to allow a connections from any IP address.
In BoincTasks Setting, make sure the Expert tab shows Reconnect every xx seconds e.g. 120 and the Connection timeout e.g 120.

Boinctasks seems to have a very flimsy connection, often requiring the toolbox to persuade communication to work.  Can't this be reprogrammed to function better?
BoincTasks relies on the BOINC client to communicate.
But what you are telling, something isn't right.
Do you use a fixed IP address, or a dynamic.
Doesn't the offending BOINC computer show anything in it's message log. It might be refusing the connection.

Having many computers is always going to have one that's having problems.  I don't expect this to annoy Boinctasks, making it even harder for me to spot the problem, since the whole thing stops working!
Hmm, the connection is there, but it's doing something unexpected.
It doesn't actually stops but waits, the other computer made a connection and sends something.
But you are right it might be avoided if I knew what the problem is.

It's one of my computers that's playing up and doesn't always respond.  But why does Boinctasks not continue to run and show the other three?  It seems odd that one connection halts the whole program.  Imagine if I had 50 computers....
All connections run an isolated thread so they are not supposed to influence each other.
But everyone waits for the slowest computer.
What I suggest is put the 3 good computers in a group to isolate them from the bad computer.
I have no idea why this happens, maybe something low level.

Maybe you should figure out why that one computer isn't responding as it should.

The computer Boinctasks is on is not overloaded.  Any idea why?  Boinctasks does have immense difficulty connecting to new computers or ones I've rebooted, it seems a rather flimsy communication system.
I would say it's have problems communicating with the computers.
Seems like the computers on the other side aren't responding to a request.
If it takes too long the thread that handles the computer will try to establish a new connection.

Firewall/virus scanner might be the cause, or the BOINC client refuses to connect.
Problems while rebooting might be because the IP address changed.

You can goto show->log and click on Debug setup and check Connecting. Also check Enable debug mode.
This might show what's going on.

I don't have time to look into this for some time.
What I do know.. The BOINC Client has a list of GPU's it uses and the ID, that way you should be able to match the device number BoincTasks uses.

Wish List / Re: Messages view doesn't show all computers at once
« on: January 14, 2020, 08:21:09 am »
Thankyou.  I don't know if a limitation would need to be added to only show the last (eg. 1000 messages from each of the 5 computers), as I run Boinctasks on a reasonably fast machine (i5 8600K) .  It would have no problem displaying 5 x 5000 messages, but I do notice that even with 1 x 5000 messages it does take a couple of seconds to display, so on a slower machine that could run into quite a long time.
Giving it more thought, I see no way to combine 5 computers and show messages together that have no relation to each other.
I'm afraid your end up with an unreadable bunch of messages.

It seems it displays only the last 5000 messages when I select one computer.  Could the same not be done if I select all of them?  It's sometimes handy to see what all the computers have been doing recently.
5000 is the BOINC Client Limit.
I will add it to my list and see if it's feasible.

Oh that.  Yes but my problem is what messages are displayed.
Displaying everything would certainly overwhelm you and your computer.

You're gonna have to get yourself some deputies!
For the record BOINC and the BOINC app are not my projects.

So you're saying there's no way to make Boinctasks talk to phones without the phone end being recoded?
Yes, probably a lot of interesting work, like rewriting the connection socket.
Seems to be no one available to pick up the task. It seems interesting enough, if I wasn't swamped with other work.

Sorry, not sure what you mean by that.  What is the "selection window"?
View->Check Sidebar computer selection.

Wish List / Re: BoincTasks Stealing Window Focus
« on: January 10, 2020, 03:06:47 pm »
The weird thing was the machine would seem fine for a couple days and then the problem would start it seemed random.
Didn't notice it before, but rules is what can cause BoincTasks to get the focus.
Set the rule to "Show nothing".
Got to Show->Rules log, setting "Enable debug mode" might give you more info.

Wish List / Re: kbps should be kBps on transfers
« on: January 10, 2020, 03:01:52 pm »
But Boinctasks (I have the latest Beta, version 1.80) reports it as kbps (which would be kilobits per second).
On the todo list, in transmission rates bps is more common.
