I've noticed that every disconnect/reconnect to my server is being =
counted as another client from iaonline.com. I'm guessing that this is =
due to automatically assigned IP addresses like dialup20, dialup47, etc. =
My estimated keys/day is roughly equivalent to the number listed for =
iaonline.com. While the odds of my Pentium beating a Cray to the right =
key are laughable, the question of how I would be identified in that =
unlikely event has crossed my mind. I assume that someone at =
http://www.frii.com/~rcv/ would have to call my server and find out who =
was logged on to dialup(whatever).iaonline.com at xx:xx:xx GMT. Is this =
right? Can just anyone get that information from my server? If so how? =
I'd be sending some e-mail if the deschall client informed me that it =
had found the key but what if I somehow missed it. Just wondering...=20
