Hello. I'm having some issues with the Folding@Home Client for raspberry pi. I am using a raspberry pi 4 with the 64bit version of Raspberrypi OS (Found here: https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspios_arm64/images/raspios_arm64-2021-05-28/) I have the client, control, and viewer installed already, I am just having problems getting started. I have been able to get Folding at home operating on a different computer (A PC, if it helps).
When I open FAHControl (from the application menu in the top right) the window pops open. However, most of the window is gray and unresponsive. There is some text saying, "Client: Local Connecting Inactive". I configured the client directly by editing the config.xml file (When I opened the control for the first time, no window or pop-up allowed me to configure the client first before trying to connect). In the top bar of the control, the "Configure" tab does not allow me to do much. All I have access to is the "Connection" tab, no others.
My Research So Far
I have been able to find other forms on this same topic but none have helped (2 to be exact). Most claim it is a port issue but I am not sure how to open or close a port. From my very little knowledge of how F@H works, I think it is a conflict issue. As stated above, I have F@H operational on a PC. The PC is running F@H almost constantly. Both the PC and Raspberry pi are connected to the same Wifi. Also, I have had very similar issues on my laptop, so I think it is a sort of interference problem rather than a firewall/port issue. Thank you.
