An alternate approach is to set your thresholds to the max (200:200), and
then in a separate window, run the client with the "-flush" option. I
would imagine some of the various Windows dialin programs will let you
launch an arbitrary program when the connection comes up. (At least, I'd
On my Linux box at home, I have it buffer 200:200, and then asynchonously,
I dial in a couple times a day and do an ./rc564 -flush. Works pretty well.
On top of that, I have a cron job which runs twice a day to dial in and
flush, so in the worst case I get about 122-123 blocks queued up. Not bad,
IMHO. I see no reason which this shouldn't work in Windows as long as you
can write dialscripts.
