Thus spoke the keyboard of Randy Boring (26/01/98):

I've got it working. Here's what I did:

1. don't change anything in the in DESChallMac.prefs file. Specifically,
*don't* change the keyserver entry. As I understand it, this is a special
address for the deschall clients; the client won't work with the old or 
distributed.net rc5/DESII keyservers or with personal proxies.
2. The prefs file also warns not to put spaces anywhere, maybe you did 
inadvertenly. Maybe the easiest thing to do is to download a clean copy of
DESChallMac_fat.sea, install it into its own folder and see if that works.
Good luck!
