Ummm, actually this file is only supposed to exist on the server, and
when the client connects to report the status, it will also download a
copy of it's (section) of the file and apply that for future status updates.

Note: I forget the details, but it can take 15 minutes (3 cycles) before
you will see the changes applied/working.
