it must be really obvious but

Using the BOINC client, how can i get it to cache more than a couple of units in one go

just that one of my rigs is only getting on the net every couple of days and it keeps running out



Thanks

As a new registration it will take a couple of days for the caching to sort out.  In the meantime, set your profile to connect every 3 days, maybe four.  Don't make the time too long or you risk overshooting the work unit deadlines.  Normally they're plenty long enough but sometimes only a couple of days.  I've had one that was due within 24hrs once.

Go into "My Grid" then "Device Manager", then "Device Profiles", then down the bottom of the page you'll see the "Default" listing for your BOIC profile.  Click that link.  Now check the "Custom Profile" button, scroll down to the "Network Usage" section and set the "Connect to network every" to what you want.  Then click "Save" at the bottom of the page.  Now go and update the machine and make sure that under the "Activity" tab you "Suspend Network Activity" when you are going to disconnect the machine from your network.  When you want to send/receive again set it back to "Network always connected" and let it do it's thang.  Just be aware, they will only send out a max of 10 work units per request, so if it's a fast machine you may need to leave it connected for a while to get everything down.
