	I guess I didn't explain properly.  All the PCs I have are stand
alone, only connect to the Internet via modem.  So I have the proxy server
running on the same machine as the client.  Since I am not connected to any
network, my machine (Win95) doesn't have an IP address per say.  So how do
I tell the RC5 client to talk to the proxy server which are both on the
same local machine.  When I dial into the net the proxy can talk to the key
servers to get the key chunks.

	Are the new clients going to be released by the end of the weekend for
sure or is this just what you have been hearing?
