Interesting... I've been using 3c509s under Linux before and the Linux
driver README mentions something along the lines of the "Server" setting
being nothing but a hint to the driver and hence only relevant for Windows -
is OpenBSD behaving differently in that regard? (I'm asking 'cause I'm now
using those 3c509s in an OpenBSD box...).
