My client has indeed been reporting sending blocks.  Here's a snippet from
the logfile:

[07/08/97 23:37:00 GMT] Processing block 0015BE7B:10000000 from 0.00%
[07/08/97 23:48:35 GMT] Completed block 0015BE7B:10000000 (268435456 keys)
in 695 secs [386 kkeys/sec]
[07/08/97 23:49:12 GMT] The proxy says: "Bovine Proxy KeyServer (Build 2095)"

[07/08/97 23:50:25 GMT] Retrieved 20 block(s) from server

and just today:

[07/16/97 15:20:17 GMT] Processing block 0063F753:00000000 from 0.00%

I'm just using Mac client 2 with dial-on-demand with OT 1.1.1 and OT/PPP
1.0.  What I've noticed with my client is that sometimes it fails to report
a set of blocks, it retrieves more and reports them later. Or that's what
appears to be happening.


Later,

Jason
