Hi all,

I seem to be having a problem getting the mongrel progress uploader
working on a remote upload server.

Right now I have it setup where my website is running mongrel cluster, I
have loaded the mongrel progress plugin with it and I am using the drb
service.  Everything works great this way.

What I really want to do is have a dedicated upload server (e.g. so I can separate it physically  from my web/app
server.  The problem I am having is that the upload server does not seem
to be communicating with the DRB service (which is local on the upload
server box) to tell it the progress of the upload.  The webserver hits
the DRB service fine, but it gets back an error when it doesn't get
returned the progress of the upload that is supposed to be happening.

Is there a trick to setting up the mongrel progress plugin so it can
take an upload from a remote server? Do I have to set the path
differently in the mongrel_progress.conf?  Any help would be
appreciated.  Thanks.
