For those with BOINC clients above version 7.2, there is now an option to connect with SSL on the URL:

https://lhcathome.cern.ch/vLHCathome/

This server runs a web-front end and scheduler for this project. To use it, please detach fron the project, and re-attach using the new HTTPS URL.

The other project daemons still run on the same server as before. The old server and URL will remain in place until further notice.

So far our tests of this distributed server setup works fine, and we would appreciate feedback in case of problems.

The feeder on boincai06 which handles BOINC clients that connected to https://lhcathome.cern.ch/vLHCathome/ instead of http://lhcathome2.cern.ch/vLHCathome/ is not running according to http://lhcathome2.cern.ch/vLHCathome/server_status.php.

I can't report ready tasks and have to detach the project (ready tasks lost) and attach to the old (not so secure) url to get new tasks.
