Any SETI users here? I used to be years ago, but just stopped. Anyway saw that you can run SETI via BOINC on FreeBSD and thought that is pretty cool.

I would like to run the 'number cruncher' on my 'headless' NAS box which is on all the time, but I don't have a GUI running on it. So my question is, can I run the number cruncher on my NAS, but run the graphical manager utility on a FreeBSD based desktop (or even a remote browser for that matter), which is not powered up all the time? Has anyone tried this?

I wrote to soon. Found some pages. So I have client installed on one of my FreeBSD boxes, and (for now) the gui manager installed on my Windows machine. Have followed the instructions on doing a remote connection, but its not working. Stay tuned.
