The address given to fri -s ADDR is not the address of the server (that one
is autodiscovered using the Ring), but the address the local DRb service must
bind to (in short, fri also exports a DRb service that will be used by the
remote fastri-server to tell fri where it is).
So, if your server is 192.168.100.163 and your client is running on
192.168.100.164, you'd have to do
$ fastri-server -a 192.168.100.0/24 -s 192.168.100.163
$ fri -s 192.168.100.164 Array
$ export FASTRI_ADDR=192.168.100.164
$ fri Array
I'm revisiting that code to see if I can make 'fri Array' work without
specifying the local address, but for the time being the above should work.
