Problem adding Computers
« on: May 25, 2020, 11:25:14 am »
I've set up BoincTasks on my Windows 10 PC and added all my BOINC clients. 9 Raspberry Pi 4B's and the W10 host on which l'm running BoincTasks - it found all the machines but some have found the name but some haven't and only display the IP address. They all communicate OK and display all running tasks and details so BoincTasks is communicating with each Boinc client correctly. All are running identical Raspian installations. They are all in the W10 hosts file so the BoincTasks host can resolve all the names correctly

How do l change the IP addresses to names? If l rescan the Computers BoincTasks sometimes picks up the name but also displays 'Yes, Not Connected' even though it seems to communicate correctly. Seems a bit random.

It's a simple network and all clients are on the same subnet.

Any suggestions?

Go to the Computer Tab and change the name in the Computers column.
If the IP address of the computer isn't fixed, you should use the MAC Address instead of the IP address.
