Unless the win95 machine is configured for automatic dial-out when it 
detects an ip connection attempt, there's no need to bother with 
lurkonly.  Just leave the machine as it was.  The client will have 
more network connections, but when he dials up it will be able to 
flush.  If you want, you can set lurk to ensure it tries to flush 
each time he dials up.
