That means by request of the user, not the administrators. :)
When the client receives a SIGHUP, it will quit after it finishes the
current block. You can:
a) use a shell that doesn't send SIGHUP's to processes when you logout
b) try nohup
c) use screen
Here are a couple examples:
nohup rc5 -a rc5proxy.distributed.net moo > /dev/null &
screen rc5 -a rc5proxy.distributed.net moo (then ^A d to detach)
Read the man pages for more information. I personally use screen.
To unsubscribe, send email to majordomo at llamas.net with 'unsubscribe rc5' in the body.
