Default BOINC again !?

Hi;

I am having newbie problems with boinc, ports and SELinux -- I think.

Networks and SELinux are two subjects I have put off learning to any
rudimentary depth. So here goes.

I can get Boinc to connect to the World Community Grid immediately after
first download and install. (I have removed it and re-installed to test
this). But after a reboot I can no longer connect to any of the project
sites.

I went to the WCG forum and explained my problem. The response was --
open ports 80 and 443.

'netstat' does not list 80 or 443 as present, i.e, as active.
SELinux is in permissible mode.
SELinux gives the following for those two ports.
http_port_t tcp s0 80
http_port_t tcp s0 443

So ... where do I go from here?

You need to open the ports in your firewall (iptables).

Didn't have iptables running. I do now with ports 80 and 443 set as
trusted -- still nothing.

Do I have to move or link some file(s) from /var/lib/boinc to $HOME?

don't know anything about BOINC but do you have/need httpd running
(sounds like it)

/sbin/service httpd status
/sbin/service httpd start

Half-way there. Now port 80 is showing on netstat but not 443.

Never thought to check httpd service. Every new install before Fedora 9
automagically set httpd as a default service. That is not a complaint
-- just a weak wristed excuse.

httpd should start both 80 & 443 and thus should show a Listener on both
ports in netstat...

# netstat -an|grep 443
tcp 0 0 :::443 :::*
LISTEN

check /var/log/httpd/error_log
and
/var/log/httpd/ssl_error_log for clues about problems.

chkconfig httpd on
will make sure that httpd always starts up when you restart

Nope. Still not there.

Shttpd was already set for all 4 runlevels

yum install mod_ssl
service httpd restart

seems hard to believe that mod_ssl wasn't already installed.

What packages are required by boinc? Are they installed? Sounds like
you built it from source and not from rpm packaging.

Port 443 now appears in netstat. Thanks.
Boinc still not working -- but that is an application problem to be
figured out in the morning.

Had it working fine in Fedora 8 when it was an rpm install from the
Boinc site. If you are wondering; it is a distributed computing program
working on cancer, dengue fever cures etc.

This time it was packaged in the Fedora 9 repo site.
I downloaded and installed it with yum (yumex).

Thanks Craig. I actually learned a lot about a subject(s) I had been
putting off too long. I appreciate your help.

You don't need httpd to run the BOINC client. It doesn't need any
incoming firewall ports open either. I think this thread got
sidetracked somewhere, I don't believe the OP wants to run a
BOINC project server.
