      It\'s been reported on various projects. The project needs to update their server code.

      There was a fix posted on one of the project boards. It deals with editing the xml files. I\'ll try to remember to look for it.

        Found it!

        From Steve Cressman over at uFluids...

        If you are still getting multiple host from each contact with uFluids I may have a solution for you. I discoverd how to correct this on the client because I had the same problem at LHC with their server.

        I figured out what the problem is, at least in my case and how to correct it. This may work for you too. In my case the computer host ID # is not getting passed to the client.

        1) You can verify that this is your problem too by checking your client_state.xml file. Look for the section for ufluids.net then find the line that states the <hostid>xxxxxx</hostid>. If you have value of 0 for the ID# then this is what causes it to keep making new hosts. Now exit the text editor without saving!
        2) If you want to fix this shut down Boinc.
        3) Go to your account page at the project and click on View computers then write down the host number from the most recent one there.
        4) Go back and open client_state.xml.file with a text editor and replace the 0 with the number that you wrote down.
        5) Save the file.
        6) Restart Boinc

        Hope this helps, it worked for me at LHC

        I got bored on saturday because it was raining out and decided to see if i could find qick fix :)
