I'm not that sure it is possible to do so.
If it is possible Wine should be installed.

What you must do is check the BOINC log on the Linux machines, it may contain the info you need.
Like refused from IP or invalid Password.

i was able to install boinctasks successfully on linux , was able to run boinctask properly too.
it's just that when i run boinctoolbox, it shows boinc is not running, hence my boinctask on windows can't find my linux computer.

Checking for BOINC relies on a Windows like install and that will not work on Linux
