Form this, I assume the pc's can reach the proxy server, and the proxy
server reaches the internet...  what you need to do is point the pc
clients at the machine running the proxy.  That way the pc's only have to
connect to the proxy machine, while the proxy machine does all the
negotiating with the outside world.

Well, these probably won't mean anything by then end of this weekend after
the new clients are released, however:

TimC's are command line, Bovine has a Gui if you don't like the command
line.  I believe TimC's was under development longer, Bovine concentrating
on the proxies at first.  TimC's can buffer key blocks and store them to
disk for later retrieval if the client is stopped. Both can install
themselves into the 95/NT4.0 registry to run on reboot.  

Also, I've noticed about a 4000 keys/sec difference from the TimC client
over the Bovine client.  

Run what ya want, Both have stealth features, etc...
