that's no problem
I'm using the same buffers and inis for several machines, even with
different platforms (alpha, HP-UX, Linux, WinNT). I've only different
clients and inis for the different platforms. 
Just starting the client with 
	./rc5des-linux -ckpoint $HOSTNAME.rc5 -in buff-in.rc5 -out buff-out.rc5
	./rc5des-hpux ...
and so on - for each platform an individual ini
It runs fine and makes no problem.
