Re: A few questions from a DESCHALL newbie.

1) Does the client create a log somewhere? I can't find one. What if
something happens and I crack it overnight and the power goes out? How
will I know, especially if I've using a different dialup each time I
run it?

No it doesn't create a log file. You can create one yourself using
I/O redirection "deschal5 kerserver >logfile.txt

2) What's up with the PPro code? My P166 - OS/2 client gets 835k
keys/s, my brother's PPro 180 gets about the same with the PPro OS/2
code. Somehow that doesn't seem right.

Don't know.

3) Is there a way to specify higher/lower granularity? Also, is there
a way I can check a really big block offline and report back? I have
to machines in my room, but only one net connection, and I don't like
tying up the phone line all the time...

A lot of people would benefit from being able to request say 24 hours
worth of keys but currently it isn't supported.
