If that's the deal, I would give the proxy the IP address (not DNS name) for
the master proxy. You can get it by simply PINGing the master proxy's server
name. Most Ping programs will then report the IP address.

In any case, I would increase the buffer sizes if your LAN is doing about 4-5
Mkeys/sec. Try doubling the buffer sizes, it would probably help alot.

Btw, isn't there a "Timeout" setting somewhere?
