[RC5] Re-configuring RC5 clients for proxy configuration ?

You can do it through proxy "firewalls"-- the http: proxy is normally 8080 port
but you also need to set the client to communicate via http: protocol with encoding
of UUEncode.   And, this assumes that the administrator has approved usage of
the client on all these machines?
