The KeepAlive command is a client-server command, thus requires the
0.9-mod version on both client and server. I believe Nick has a native
Windows version with that particular modification built in. The fix is
supposed to be included with the next version of BoxBackup, currently
in the works, but in the meantime we work off a patched version.

My understanding is that the Win32 client port (there is no Win32
sever) is identical in functionality as the 0.9 "vanilla" version, with
the exception of a few patches like the KeepAlive that Nick has added
to keep his backups running.
