based on Vernon's last response it looks like you are just at the
threshhold (100k+) of it being worthwhile to run your own dcc server. If
you refer to my previous response I mentioned the basics for setting up
your own dcc server and setting up peering ("floods" in dcc parlance,
"rsync" in yours) and having your clients communicate with that. The
manpages also cover this rather extensively. Either way, Vernon
coordinates the peerings such that the dcc server network is least prone
to breaking.
