[RC5-PROXYPER] network access mode for personal proxy with dial-up?

I have the win32 client set up and running on NT4 in lurk-only mode with a
dial up connection to my ISP.  It works very nicely.

I next installed the win32 pproxy so that I could support other machines on
my lan.  The client connects to the proxy and dumps blocks to it okay, but I
don't see any way to control the proxy and get it to connect to the outside
world when (and only when) I have dialed out.  It tries to do something
every workperiod, but I don't think it ever actually accomplishes anything,
even when I'm connected.  It certainly does not get keys and make them
available when the client requests them.  I have run it mostly as a service
(using -install) but have tried it in a window too with no better luck.

The only reference to dialup with the proxy that I've been able to find is
in the proxy readme, in the section about ports/listenaddress.  That clearly
implies that my configuration is supported, but I don't see anything about
setting or controlling the network access mode or using the proxy with dial
up connections.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?
