  I has the same problem with the 311 proxy connecting and providing status
every 30 seconds. The fix for this is the parameter /statusperiod/ in the
section [misc] of your .ini file. Yours is set to 30.

proxymessage="rc5des Proxy!"
statusperiod=30 ***

***Change the /statusperiod/ parameter to some other value that you like. I
use 600 (10 minutes). I figure 6 status periods per hour is fine. I have
also tried: 120=2 minutes, and 300=5 minutes. But I do not require the huge
log proxy log files, or, possibly the higher degree of calculated running
local  statistics.

This status period does not seem to affect client interaction. The clients
connect whenever they have work done or need new blocks regardless of this
setting. It seems to control foreground proxy activity only IMHO.
