Problems obtaining GPU WU

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though AMD has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

I also have troubles getting my old HD5870 to folding and get the dummy work server assigned:

Code: Select all
14:24:53:WU00:FS01:Connecting to
14:24:53:WU00:FS01:Assigned to work server
14:24:53:WU00:FS01:Requesting new work unit for slot 01: READY gpu:0:Cypress [Radeon HD 5800/6800] from
14:24:53:WU00:FS01:Connecting to
14:25:14:WARNING:WU00:FS01:WorkServer connection failed on port 8080 trying 80

I've installed driver 15.200.1062.1004 and GPU-Z says OpenCL is available.


Did anything change for Cypress GPUs?
