[rc5] Sharing buffer/ini files via NFS

I'm sharing both buffer and ini files over NFS so that I can just
do one buffer file.  (I'm also using the unix personal proxy).

Clients are Solaris v2.

Here is what confuses me:

[08/27/97 21:03:38 GMT] Block: 24E5BF:A0000000 being processed

The proxy says: "Welcome to rc5.darkstar.net, Happy hunting!"

1) I have no idea which machine is getting the buffer errors.
2) Why do the block numbers vary so much?

If I run -update, that appears to work fine.

Here is the .ini file:
