[PROXYPER] Multiple server ip's possible?

The problem is proberbly that in Tom's config (like in mine) he can't
use dns NAMES, but needs to enter a fixed IP address (names get resolved
to 0.0.0.0 or was it 255.255.255.255?).

To my knowledge (at that is confimed to be little) there is currently no
way you can config you're pproxy use multiple IP addresses.

Next release?

1. D.Net used to have several round-robin aliases, but I can't find the
webpage with the complete list anymore. Try us.v27.distributed.net: your
perproxy should connect to another full proxy each time.
2. On the stats-page at D.Net there is a "proxy status" page:
http://www.distributed.net/rc5/proxyinfo.html

Is there a way to allow the proxy to use multiple server ip's, so when
one
goes down, it can simply move to the next one?  My proxy has been
affected
by the master it was using being down, as mine quickly ran out of blocks
and accumulated many done blocks, just because the proxy it tried to
talk
to appears to be gone for a while.  Heres the logs late in the cycle:

03/24/99 09:49:56,rc564 r=0/2000, d=887/100, 1.4 Mkeys/sec, tot=1851
03/24/99 09:49:56,desII r=0/200, d=0/10, 0.0 Mkeys/sec, tot=0
03/24/99 09:50:53,Creating outgoing server connection.
03/24/99 09:50:53,Server 209.98.32.14 changed from state 0 to 1
03/24/99 09:50:53,Server 209.98.32.14 changed from state 1 to 8
03/24/99 09:50:53,Server 209.98.32.14 is no longer connected (reading).
03/24/99 09:50:53,server: Closing server connection.
03/24/99 09:53:11,Accepted connection from address 24.236.x.xx
03/24/99 09:53:12,24.236.x.xx: Client requesting communication
03/24/99 09:53:12,24.236.x.xx: Contest rc564 didn't handle a packet!
03/24/99 09:53:12,24.236.x.xx: Closing client connection.

What would even be better is some sort of way to know when a proxy was
down, or when my perproxy is having problems.  Had I not noticed my
client
on my desktop having fits about not getting a new block, I would have
never
noticed it, and for something that is supposed to be install and forget,
this hurts that idea bigtime when the network is disrupted.  (I'm
showing 3
proxy's on the proxy status page that have not been around for 3 or more
hours).
