I just check port 12000 since 5500 is down again and got for example
25227820365*2^666668-1 or 50457149595*2^666667-1

k is below 100G and it's not 666666-1
Only a short test on different ranges?

25227820365*2^666668-1 = 100911281460*2^666666-1
50457149595*2^666667-1 = 100914299190*2^666666-1

To keep the k as small as possible, the highest power of 2 is extracted and added to n. ;)

FYI for those of you running PRPNet, if the server has moved and you have completed, but unreported workunits, then you need to do the following to get those reported.

1) Shut down the client.
2) Change the server= entry in prpclient.ini.
3) Edit the appropriate work_<xx>.save file and change the server and port.

When you restart the client it will report the results to the new server.

PRPNet on new server works fine.
Is there a timeline for updating stats/progress on these ports?

Kind of related, kind of not... But is there any chance of seeing some FreeBSD clients for PRPNet? I have a 64-bit FreeBSD 7.2 Q9450 (4x2.66ghz cores) that needs to find some primes. :)

If you have gcc on the box, you can build the client yourself. A makefile is provided.

Before I write anything else, PRPNet is not intended to compete directly with BOINC. PRPNet has limitations WRT throughput. BOINC addresses those problems much more completely than PRPNet ever will.

That being said, here are a few reasons to use PRPNet instead of BOINC:

PFGW, phrot, and (soon) genefer need a wrapper to work with BOINC. No wrappers have been written.
PRPNet is good for people running a farm for their own projects.
PRPNet is good for projects that don't expect large numbers of users. The term large here is somewhat arbitrary.
PRPNet is far, and I mean far, easier to set up and get running than BOINC.
BOINC (from a developer stand-point) is a PITA to work with.

And although I am the author of PRPNet, I think that few people would argue any of these points.

In addition to rogue's points, PRPNet allows PrimeGrid to offer a variety of prime finding projects without having to fully develop them for BOINC...mostly for the reasons rogue already mentioned. This allows users more choices in what projects they wish to participate in AND allows PrimeGrid to explore more prime forms.
