Hi,

I get the following error every time I try to download a new WU:
23-Jul-2008 20:43:42 [climateprediction.net] Started download of ozone_hadcm3_1919_2082.gz
23-Jul-2008 20:43:47 [climateprediction.net] Temporarily failed download of ozone_hadcm3_1919_2082.gz: http error
23-Jul-2008 20:43:47 [climateprediction.net] Backing off 17 min 19 sec on download of ozone_hadcm3_1919_2082.gz

It is always on this file.


Boinc client: 5.10.45
OS: Windows XP Professional SP2
Enough RAM and disk space
Sufficient internet access (all other files download)


Thanks in advance for any help.

Just tried and I was able to download the file manually. Try using this link to download the file to BOINC/projects/climateprediction.net

When trying, I get an error \'Insufficient temporary storage space\' somewhere on the way in from the internet.

Sounds like I will only be able to crunch the smaller HADSM3 WUs. They pass through with no problems. I have already adjusted preferences on my account profile accordingly.

Thanks a lot for the help.

\'Insufficient temporary storage space\' sounds a bit like you\'re using Internet Explorer, which tends to store the files temporary in your windows profile, before it moves them to their final location. The size of this profile might be limited.

If you have a download manager handy or an alternative browser, you can sure work arround that problem.

If you\'re not afraid to use a console window : wget.exe is another program that stores stuff directly to the place where you start it

It is (unfortunatly) not related to the browser. We are limited in max file size to download in our corp. network. I guess (thinking about it a bit more) that is the actual reason. And that limitation can only be changed with approuval.

So for now I have to stick to the smaller WUs and see what happens.

Thanks a lot for your help as well.

And it\'s always nice to meet the community, even if it\'s only over the WEB.
