Thank you to everybody who responded for my request for help. Using
udprelay on our firewall is working great. 26 P-166's running BSDI and
Linux, a P-133 running Win95, 2 P-100's running NT, and 5 P-90's running
Linux and BSDI are now searching keyspace.

For those who might do this sort of thing:

1. If your firewall is running Linux, FreeBSD, BSDI, NetBSD, or anything
that lacks the SYSV poll() call grab the BSD compatible version of
udprelay by Brian Clapper from
2. Edit the makefile to reflect your local config and compile.
3. Create a udprelay.conf with the following parameters:

relay *.your.domain * 8669 8669 any

4. Start udprelay on the firewall, and start your clients like this:
% deschall-xxxx-x your.firewall

Now sit back and watch the keyspace crumble.

As a side note, the HP9000 client doesn't appear to be as optimized as
some of the others. Our 9000 model G50 is running 4 to 5 times slower than
a P-90. This type of performance hit could be from a compile targeted for
a different processor version. What model of the HPPA was the client
compiled for?
