[RC5] Remote fetch/flush

The simple way to do this is just to download the windows personal proxy and
install it on your machine.  Then set up the clients on the firewalled boxes
to communicate only with that pproxy.

Or you could open up a windows file share and use shared buffers; but I
think the pproxy is less hassle.

Subject: [RC5] Remote fetch/flush

I was wondering if there is any convenient way to fetch/flush blocks
to clients that don't have open internet access. I have access to
several powerful machines but they are blocked off from all internet
access but can be reached via an intranet. So, for example, I can
reach them via my machine so I suppose I could fetch blocks to my
machine and transfer the file to the remote machines, but that seems
like a pain to do manually.

These are all Win2K machines, so I have access via normal Windows
networking and file sharing.

Someone else has to have run into this problem before, right?
