I tried the following with the portage package and the latest sources available on the BOINC website. My understanding was that the client and the manager are two different programs, hence I ran first the run_client script in one terminal, and then the run_manager script in another terminal. For some odd reason however, the manager is unable to connect, and the terminal in which I ran the run_client script does not respond to other commands than ctrl+c. If I run BOINC from the shortcut in the Applications menu, it does not connect either. When I used BOINC on Windows and Ubuntu, everything was done automatically, therefore I am wondering if I did something wrong. Any insight would be great!

Thanks.
