I set up a 275 Solaris PProxy, and it was able to retrieve keys after a short
while, and has been able to dump some keys and refill one time now in two days.
It is living behind a firewall that seems to have variable response times
(depending on if it is really busy). I have tried several methods of operation
including pointing at our Netscape web proxy server. When pointed at the web
proxy is always gets a "failed to descramble" message. When I point it at the
firewalls internal interface it does nothing in mode "0", but in modes "1", "2"
and "3" I get:
[01/19/98 19:32:29 GMT] *Flush* Initiating manual flush/fetch.
[01/19/98 19:32:29 GMT] Server 1 added to slot 1 ip 192.168.202.2 port 8080
[01/19/98 19:32:30 GMT] The proxy says: Distributed.Net DESRC5 v274b proxy

[01/19/98 19:32:42 GMT] Server 1 added to slot 1 ip <firewall internal IP
address> port 8080
[01/19/98 19:32:42 GMT] Server packet failed descramble.
[01/19/98 19:32:42 GMT] Error processing server data. Closing.
On very rare occassions, I get fifteen buffers sent, then the same fifteen put
back. Since I see the message from the keyserver (it isn't always the same
one), I assume I am sort of getting out. The clients have some troubels
getting out too, but rarely this much trouble.
Any pointers appreciated.
