      The only difference is the image we are using: the boinc/client and the boinc/client:virtualbox

      PM me with your address and I'll send you a sticker.
      There are 2 tricks - enable remote management on your OMV server/set a remote management password. Use the BOINC client from a Windows/Linux/OSX machine to configure processing, pick your projects, network uploads, etc.

      If you can show how to do it, I'll send you a sticker also.

      Watchtower will automagically keep the server updated, sometimes you have to add your projects again after updates, so I keep an eye on it via Glances.
