Thanks for the quick reply, Earl.

I grabbed the newer version (rc5proxyper-v2b261-os2), and it does solve
the time problem.  Unfortunately, there is a new problem, which is fatal!. 
The proxy starts, displays about a screen full of startup messages, then
terminates with a SYS3171. I've tried several times, but get the same
result each time. The OS2POPUP.LOG file shows the following: 

12-27-1997  20:27:25  SYS3171  PID 00df  TID 0001  Slot 00a8
P1=00000001  P2=0004fffc  P3=XXXXXXXX  P4=XXXXXXXX

SS:ESP=0053:0004ffc8  SSACC=d0f3  SSLIM=1fffffff            
EBP=000500c8  FLG=00012202                                  
RC5PROXY.EXE 0001:0000ff23                                  

The only thing that I changed in the file rc5proxy.ini was:


I've gone back to the older version & will put up with the time error
until the SYS3171 problem can be resolved.
