I don't know whether this is the appropriate list, but I'm having severe
problems with the personal proxy. 

My configuration is this: I have a Linux pc that is connected to the net
via ISP dialup. This pc is also connected with a development Ultrasparc
via a hub. On our network, that is not accessible to the PC and vice
versa are 35 Sparc/UltraSparc systems I would like to put to work. I
thought using the following config. rc5-proxyper on the linux connected
to the proxys on the net. Then a proxy on the development sparc for the
other clients to use which would get its block from the linux. To test
this I ran the client on the linux with localhost as proxy and on the
development sparc with the linuxpc as proxy. 

As long as the dialup connection to the Internet is on, the proxy
responds to queries. When it is down, it keeps running, giving nothing
at all as complaint, but the clients cannot connect. (Not even on the

I give some logging output below. Do I need to start truss/strace or
does anybody have an idea about this?

Please look into correcting your network problems as soon as possible.

I also have to add that the proxy sometimes gives an error:
select: interrupted system call
