[Spread-users] Help with configuration file

Is there anyone that can point me to a resource that would explain the 
"Spread Segment" section of the configuration file other than the User's 
guide?  I have read and re-read the section on configuration and can't 
quite understand why each machine must be listed and what the different 
segments represent.  Yes, I am a spread newbie. ;-)  I am very familiar 
with other message bus technologies such as MQSeries, SwiftMQ, and other 
JMS implementations but this seems to be a little different.

What I am attempting to do is set up a spread daemon on a single machine 
that other machines both on and off the local network can connect to.  I 
gather that each segment is informing the daemon where it must broadcast 
data to, but why the need for each machine is confusing.  Is this to 
control access to the spread daemon?  Am I even on the right track?

Can anyone offer an explanation on this section of the config file?
