Have you tried it yet? My quick search shows that no firewalld changes
should be necessary. The BOINC client will initiate the connection to
the master servers. Firewalld does not filter outbound connections. It
should work out of the box.
If think is dropping the packets then use
# firewall-cmd --set-log-denied=all
Then try BOINC again and check dmesg for dropped packets.
Hope that helps.

can anyone please tell me what should I do in order to give my

How should I configure my firewalld to let boinc manager access my
computer's hardware space and computing utilities? There are many
people who want to get speed for their systems that do distributed
data work on proteins and disease analysis. I want some people to help
me configure my system to release its computing capabilities to our
scientists and doctors out there searching for a cure to Coronavirus.
