Hello together.
First of all, please ask if I wrote unclear, my English is not the best.
At the moment I feal rather stupid. I installed the software on my ubuntu server and set up a account. I donnot have running dpkg or sth like that, actually I have no monitor plugged.
So I have to use boinc_cmd, at least I think so. But I don\'t get how to set it up. I get sth like this:
root@server1:/home/marc/BOINC# ./boinc_cmd --network_available
connect: Connection refused
can\'t connect to local host

Does anyone know how to set it up, if you had the time it would be awesome to get an step by step manual.

One more question: Which ports do I have to open?

The user manual at http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Main_Page might help. There is also an unofficial guide at http://www.boinc-wiki.info/Main_Page.

The specific page for boinccmd is http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Boinccmd_tool

The ports that BOINC uses are 80 for external communication and 31416 for internal.

Hope these help.

It's boinc_client that does the work, but confusingly it also acts as a server (daemon) so that boinccmd can monitor/modify what's happening.

So to run from the command line, as a plain user I do

boinc_client &
boinccmd --project_attach https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/ ACCOUNT_KEY

p.s. I would NOT run this as root! You are pulling down and running executables from someplace on the web, after all. If you are trying to run BOINC as a system daemon, then you probably need to do something like "service boinc-client start" instead.
