Hey, I have a DP web server here which does not take a vast amount of request so I thought I would set one of those processors to some use.

I have always had the server locked down with the locking feature of the screensaver but when I switch the screen saver to Folding@Home I am no longer asked for my password.

I am running X.1.5.... anyone know if this is a problem with F@H or with F@H under 10.1.x??

I do not want to use the terminal on the server if I can avoid it and I am going to upgrade it to X.2 soon.

That's a weird one...the only thing I can think of is that it's not supported on 3rd party screensavers.

Have you checked all the documentation for it (Folding screensaver)?
