[RC5-PROXYPER] Intermittent Proxy Communications

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] Status: Slot 0 LISTENING
[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.
