Althoug on a permanent line, I tried that one too...

Wait, I'll show you what I got on the screen:

As you can see: I have a whole load of keys just begging to be
forwarded... but no result...

Wait, I'll throug in my ini file as well:

I am about to email this ppbuffout.rc5 file to someone and have her/him
flush them.

An other thing to the developers, if they are listening in: upon startup
of the proxy, the ini file settings like minkeysready and maxkeysdone
are check for consistency: they are reloaded after a ctrl-break on NT,
but not checked.

I use the NT PProxy on a dialup workstation that serves keys to a couple
of
other machines that chew through keys during the day.  When I get home
at
night they have completed a couple of hundred keys.  I connect to the
Internet and load the rc5desproxyper.ini file, change maxkeysdone=300 to
maxkeysdone=1 and restart the proxy.  Once the proxy fire up it sees
that it
has exceeded the maxkeysdone and starts to communicate with the server.

This might be more clumsy than necessary but it works.  8-/

[ I had to do this because if the proxy exceeded the 'maxkeysdone' value
it
would not longer accept completed blocks from the clients.  The clients
would then all timeout and need restarting.  Is this normal behaviour or
have I played with the .ini file too much?  8-) ]

Try setting 'maxkeysdone' to a lower value, try 1 to test, then restart
the
proxy.

It would be nice to be able to press 'f' on the proxy console screen and
have it flush the keys to the server for us dialup users.
