Hello Luke,

thank you for help. Its working. Another servers will be hosted by 
different ISP
and peering lines are not fast, so I decided to test 'chain' solution.

But mountpoints must be configured by hand and are static. Is there a 
way to relay all streams?
Number of streams and their names can change from time to time. How to 
do it?

What is the target usage of <master-server> section?
