How long ago did you join the project? For the first 2 or 3 weeks, there there was a misconfiguration that could have caused the second, erroneous scheduler url entry (my original name for the project was mlds at home, and I missed changing a name before I went live). But that's been fixed for some time, and a grep over the project dir for that string returns nothing. Could you try detatching/re-attaching to the project and seeing if that helps?

Thanks

I joined the project on 9-jul-2020 so I got the misconfiguration.

As asked I detached and reattached and after that there was no longer a second scheduler url.
The work fetch now gave no errors.
Thanks for the info.

PS @floyd I was correct there was a misconfiguration The only reason you did not had it is that you joined the project several weeks later than I did.

"Couldn't resolve host name" and "Project communication failed" should not be there
Agreed. The question is, why are they there?

It think there is somekind of mismatch between the host work request and the response from the server.
If the host name can't be resolved there is no request and thus no response. The problem is on your side.

What are you doing? Hammering the update button? Stop that, take a deep breath, that may be all you need to do. It could well be a temporary issue with your ISP, or you being impatient. If time doesn't help, check your own system.

Wrong answer and since I don't think your are one of the Admins please don't give uninformed answers.

This is a clean work request made by the Boinc manager and it happens every time.
Have you checked your own host eventlog? You will likely find the same thing.

So my question to the Admins still stands.

Edit: In the client_state.xml file I found these 2 lines wich where inserted in this file during the Add Project process.

<scheduler_url>https://www.mlcathome.org/mlcathome_cgi/cgi</scheduler_url>
<scheduler_url>https://www.mldsathome.org/mlcathome_cgi/cgi</scheduler_url>

I checked on simular entrys for other projects and these have only 1 scheduler url entry.
There is possible an error in the Attach setup for the project that is send to the host.

If I am correct the Admins first have to fix the Attach setup and then everybody will need to detach en reattach to the project.

Admins, every time my host wants work it gets this response:

I get work but "Couldn't resolve host name" and "Project communication failed" should not be there.
It think there is somekind of mismatch between the host work request and the response from the server.
Please check your settings for this. Thank you.
