If the EGG computer is behind a firewall, it must be programmed
to allow UDP packets on port 2510 outgoing packet and UDP port
1105 for an incoming connection.

This allows the bidirectional communication required for the data
to be transmitted. What happens is that your program sends an
"awake" packet when it has unsent data. The server in Princeton
responds with a "data request" packet, and then the EGG program
will send the data.

This package is known to compile but not run successfully on at 
least the amd64 architecture.  The only architecture it has really
been tested on is i386...  If anyone is sufficiently motivated
to chase down and fix whatever the problem is, patches would be 
welcomed!
