gdsfilt delay in floating mode

One of our customers reported that it takes 2 minutes for gdsfilt Linux to start on their network. In this specific case, the server was in the US while the clients were in Asia.

gdsfilt is used by several of our programs so it has a few product ID. The solution was to provide the client with key codes for product ID ACS3555 which is the first ID that gdsfilt is looking for.

For example, consider the following gdsfilt command line where we merge 4 files together. (The command line has been broken into multiple lines for readability, but in real usage it would be all one long line.)
