• Launch the client and load the host cache. • Try to connect to the GNet, using the host cache. • If after X seconds, there's no connection to the GNet, query a random GWebCache. • Wait for at least Y seconds before sending a request to another GWC (it may happen that the first chosen GWC is down, or very slow to answer). • After Y seconds, if no results have been received from the first GWC call, call a new GWC each Z seconds, until a response is received from one of them. • Once results have been received from (at least) one GWC, the servent SHOULD NOT send a new request during the next session, unless the host cache is empty (which should not happen if there is an initial host cache provided with the software and no option to clear the host cache is available)
