    Is there anyway to run WCG on a rig that has no video card? It has everything but a VC....

    Sure, most MB's will boot without one. Sometimes there's a setting in BIOS like "halt on no errors". Just use remote desktop or BOINCview to keep tabs on it My whole farm runs without vid cards.

    Well it runs on Linux and I have not figured out how to do boincview with it, I ordered a cheap ATI card from newegg that had free shipping but it was DOA so I sent it back... I will just turn it on and hope it works, it was running WCG before until I robbed the VC for another rig...

    You can always look on your device stats on the WCG page to make sure it's at least putting up daily scores.

    Maybe one of the Linux guys will pipe in with how to boincview on Linux.

    Just some thoughts on it.....Caveat: I'm no Linux expert by any means....Maybe it's just like on a win machine since I would imagine it has generated the equivalent of GUI_RPC_AUTH and is looking for a remote_hosts config file. Perhaps you could use a file search function and see what's in the boinc directory. If GUI_RPC_AUTH is there maybe you could throw on the remote host file and away you go...

    What Linux Distro are you using? Most decent ones have some kind of remote access built in, so you can "borrow" a card from another machine, boot it up, set up remote access, then close down, remove card, reboot, and then away you go. You might just have to make sure that the OS doesn't care if there's a VC or not.

    Yeah, I would make sure the bios is setup to skip any errors first, like lack of keyboard or whatnot, including no VC. Do you have openssh setup(the standard way to launch an encrypted session into a linux machine)?

    Basically all you need to do to remote manage a boinc installation is setup remote_hosts.cfg with the specified IPs to control it(or else take the risk and run boinc with the '--allow_remote_gui_rpc' arguement to allow all to access it) and have the password set in gui_rpc_auth.cfg that'll be required to login. Let us know if you need any more help or if there are problems

    If he's just accessing the computer from within his (secured) home LAN, there's no need for anything more advanced than an un-encrypted standard remote access. Makes things a hell of a lot easier

    Well, telnet would be un-encypted, and I don't hear it really being used over ssh(which should be considered secure for the most part)... For all intents and purposes openssh isn't very hard to setup, at least as a binary package. I know in the past I've had to manually setup an RSA/DSA key, but I swear with most distros these days it'll take care of the hard part and you only have to modify the config file if need be.

    Heh, fair enough. For my Ubuntu rigs, I just enable Remote Desktop from settings, and then use something like UltraVNC Viewer to check up on them from my main rig. Takes all of 4-5 clicks to set up Remote Desktop on the 'buntu machine

    Way to go with that, it's built-in with Ubuntu. I go under network properties with the icon in the top corner and set a fixed IP address, then use the Terminal Server Client under "Internet" to connect to that IP addy via VNC.
