[PROXYPER] Problem with proxy and linux ?

 Im trying to use a proxy (running under Linux, RH 5.2 and kernel 2.2.5)
and there seems to be some problems - the clients seem to often get
an error and abort downloading new keyblocks. They never seem to actually
get around to sending their finished blocks back.

 The Linux box has 2 ethernet interfaces, one in the 'public' network
and one in the private. The Linux box (dual PII) is also running the
cracking client.

 This is an example of what im seeing on the proxy side -

 The clients are a mix of Linux and windows NT 'service'. A number of the
NT machines are on a private network and the only way they can get keys is
via the personal proxy as they cant see the internet.

 If the clients are manual flushed, they seem to upload their finished blocks
fine.

 Some times they get to download a few keyblocks, but often they dont. And
somes times a client will get a few blocks and the next few times nothing
but error.

 The proxy is v303 and the clients were downloaded from the web site in the
last week or so...

 Any one offer any ideas ?
