You did install the server in offline mode. That means that it won't
call out to get some keys...

...kill the connection!
and the client:

Well - if he doesn't get one packet!?!?....

Well - you didn't make something wrong but you just forget to let the
server fetch some keys from one of the keyservers. Currently, I do
not know excatly know how to trigger a connection, but the docs that
I have, say that you should press CTRL+BREAK (not CTRL+C) in
the Proxy window to let it call out (of course your Internet connection
must be up...)
Just another comment (my 2 cents): You will just request 50 keys
from the keyserver with the current setting. My two computers here
can do around 400 keys a day, so this value seems to be a bit to
low in my eyes...
Hope it helps...
