 +====== Setting up remote BOINC ======
 +Setting up a remote BOINC client seems to be a bit confusing, mainly due to the lack of error messages. This is what you have to do to get it working. 
 +  - ''sudo apt-get install boinc-client''
 +  - Modify ''/etc/boinc-client/remote_hosts.cfg'' to add the manager's IP address. **Do note that wildcards / CIDR ranges don't seem to work!**
 +  - Modify ''/etc/default/boinc-client'' to enable RPC control. 
 +Note that if you want to remove hosts from BOINC Manager's interface, you will have to manually edit ''${HOME}/.BOINC Manager''.
