Default NFSNET to factor my own numbers?

hello

Does anybody know if I can use NFSNET to factorize my own numbers?
Or I can only factorize the numbers that are automatically downloaded by BOINC?

I would like to benchmark it against ggnfs or other implementations.

regards

NFSNET is dead. Maybe you are talking about NFS@Home.

In what way would you like to to benchmark it against ggnfs or other implementations?!?!

The NFSNET client can be run manually if you give it correctly formatted input files. You will find that it has a difficult time scaling up to large problems, and even if it works you'll find it's much slower than the lattice sievers we use now.

Edit: I see you were asking about NFS@Home; the siever code used there is precisely the same as the one used in GGNFS, with a very few mods to work with BOINC.
