The problem is that you have two segments defined with exactly the same
broadcast address and port number (segments 1 and 2). Since the purpose
of segements is to define unique broadcast domains, if all 5 machines
are in the same local ethernet (as it appears) they should be listed in
the same segment. 

If you want to have two segments for some reason, then you need to give
them different port numbers so they do not receive each others messages. 

I admit  that the error message is a bit cryptic. The error you are
getting is usually because the name you configured in the spread.conf
does not match the DNS name of the machine, so it can't find itself in
the configuration file. But you are running spread with the "-n" option
to force the name so that should not be a problem.

Try with one segment, or with different port numbers and if it still
doesn't work, email the list back.
