 -in and -out specify RC5, -in2 and -out2 specify DES

 If they are not always connected, do NOT try to share buffers - unless
you LIKE complete system hangs and lockups.

 It sounds like you should be running a proxy server on your '95 machine
instead, and point the client on the other machine at that proxy server.
 You CAN run a proxy server and a RC5 or DES client on the same machine.
