       boinccmd - The command line interface to the BOINC client.


       boinccmd [--host hostname[:port]] [--passwd passwd] {command}
       boinccmd [-hV]

       Notice  that  the  order of the options is important. The --host and --passwd options must
       precede any command.


       The BOINC command tool (boinccmd) provides a command line interface to control  a  running
       BOINC  client  (boinc(1)).  It  communicates  with  a running client using port 31416 over
       TCP/IP. It can only connect to one client at a time.


       --host hostname[:port]
              Connect to the host hostname.  The default host is localhost.

       --passwd passwd
              Use passwd as password for RPC authentication. If  the  current  working  directory
              contains a file gui_rpc_auth.cfg, boinccmd will read the password from this file.

       -h, --help
              Show a help message and all commands.

       -V, --version
              Show the version of the program.

       --join_acct_mgr URL name passwd
              Attach to an account manager (or do RPC if already attached).  The account  has  to
