It should, in fact I've seen discussion of doing that. Just move the
buff_in and buff_out files to a networked system, and run "rc564
-flush" and it should send out the completed buffers. If you're
gonna sneaker net them as a general rule, "rc564 -update" will send
the completed blocks and fetch new blocks. Then just copy the buffer
files back to the non-networked machine and start up the client
