[RC5-PROXYPER] Proxyper and Internet off-line

Hello,

I have a question regarding setup of the Unix Personal Proxy v2. We have 
Internet access allowed only during working days from 8 to 19 (dialup behind 
the firewall). When Internet is down and the proxy is "trying harder" to send 
out completed blocks the proxy is not listening (or timeouts connections) for 
blocks completed by clients. Clients come out of blocks and generating random 
ones. I'm flushing all completed blocks before "closing hour" every day by cron 
but there is more blocks completed on Saturdays and Sundays than 1000. Creation 
of new port 2065 did not help.

Could somebody help me with the configuration of proxy or does anybody have 
some work around or idea?

Thank you in advance.

V. Paur


My linux proxyper is configured this way:

[KeyServer]
ipaddress=rc5proxy.distributed.net
port=2064
workperiod=120
multiplesubmit=300

[options]
port=2064
port2=2065
port3=2066
port4=2067
timeout=60
logfile=keyproxy.log
minkeysready=320
maxkeysready=960
testport=3064
proxymessage=Ahoj tady je nas Linux...
forcemail=rc5 at aliatel.cz

But when Internet is off-line during weekends, proxy log says:
