i have a similar setup with a modified version of xnetload running on my
masq router and swallowed into wharf on my workstation machine.
i just run a loop like:

while true ; do xnetload -display <workstation name> ; sleep 10 ; done

on the router, and on the workstation i have:

*Wharf netload - Swallow "xnetload" true

in my wharf config.

so xnetload on the router keeps trying to connect, which just fails if
workstation is down, or i'm not logged in.
when i log in i run "xhost <router>" manually (i could do it from
but i prefer doing it manually) and remove it after it's connected.
a better way would be to put a command like:

xhost +<router>;sleep 20;xhost -<router>

into autoexec.
