[Spread-users] Config question

I am a new user of spread, and while everything seems to work as 
documented when a spread daemon is running on a server X and clients 
connect to is from various machines, I am having hard time with the 
following three issues:

1. I put the following in my configuration:

Spread_Segment {

When I remove the localhost entry line, and try to start a spread 
daemon, I get the following in spread.log:

Set runtime directory to '/var/run/spread'
Set user name to 'serge'
Set group name to 'devlp'
Conf_init: My proc id ( is not in configuration
Exit caused by Alarm(EXIT)

Is it normal to require in the config file?

2. I noticed that when this localhost line is present in the
config file, any client connecting to the spread daemon gets a name:

Is there a way to have spread daemon running on DevLinuxPro assign a 
name like: #CLIENTNAME#DevLinuxPro given the config file above?

3. When I try to run two daemons, one on DevLinuxPro and one on StarDev1 
using the config above, I have local clients on each server connect to 
the local daemon.  When a client on DevLinuxPro joins a group "test", I 
expect that it should recive messages from the client connected to the 
StarDev1's daemon, which sends a message to the "test" group.  However 
this doesn't happen.  In both cases the client is "spuser" application.

Is there anything that can be done in order to troubleshoot why messages 
are not being exchanged between two daemons?

I appreciate any help with these questions.
