The ones on the download page had not identified themselves properly. 
 There are newer versions now, in any event.

Re the command line, this is a Win95 bug (doesn't happen under NT I'm 

In your case, try:
rc5.exe -a rc5proxy.distributed.net -i -ri -la -k 5 slansky at usa.net

You don't need the filename rc5.log
You don't need 2 servers (the clients respect the fact that 
rc5proxy.distributed.net actuall points at many servers and will 
cycle among them now)
You could even remove the -k 5 if you have a decent internet 
connection (it will default to -k 2)
