I walked through the following tutorial and discovered that RingFinger
from a client will only find ringservers within its subnet:
http://segment7.net/projects/ruby/drb/rinda/ringserver.html

Is there anyway one could use this package on multiple networks?
Perhaps a properties file that lists hostnames that could be
potentially running ringservers?

It's difficult to find english docs on Rinda & Tuplespace :-(

I'm new to it honestly but find it hard to believe that it will only
work on one lan segment.

Thank you.
