Hello Herbert,

  1. Get the perproxy for you 'gateway' box
  2. Read the included doc - it's quite complete.
  3. Edit the perproxy ini file. The default is probably ok, execpt
     perhaps for the 'maxblock' settings. Setting it to something like
     500 should be sufficient.
  4. Run the perproxy :)

[I'll assume that you've got tcpip configured correctly and that
you're  using ip addresses 192.168.1.x for your internal network and
that the gateway internal nic's address is]

  5. Set all your clients 'Communication mode' (option 9?) to 'expert
     mode' (setting 5).
  6. Set the 'Desired proxy' (option 10) to point to your gateway box

At this point the client should connect directly to the perproxy for
flushing and fetching.

That should be all that's required. I don't _think_ that I've left
anything out. If you have any problems, let me know.
