I was hoping to use it to proxy some stuff (i.e. register mDNS addresses for VPN clients, so that their usual whatever.local hostname would be available when connected in remotely, simplifying some matters like maybe xymon monitoring of them when connected), but I can't get it to stay running.  Using launchd and the plist, I don't even get a useful error message.  Trying to run it by hand, I get:
