| work unit processing) instead of email.  So, which technique is

| distributed.net/internet connection?  A variety of variables may come
| into play, so any serious discussion would be appreciated.

The e-mail portal is basically a machine that accepts e-mails and then
runs the client to connect to a fullproxy just as you would.  Using your
own client to send the completed work saves us both from the extra
overhead of email.

If you can't/don't want to run dnetc for real on the Linux box, have you
considered a personal proxy?
