This program was written by Upi Tamminen
I have put a copy of Upi's program on this site and you can download it here:

Here is Upi's README file:
Reppu is a network-renderer for use with blender.
Using reppu is very simple, just start reppu server in each host you want to use for rendering. 'reppu --server'.
Blender must be installed on each host !
Then start the client, e.g
reppu -e 360 hieno.blend localhost teletubbies.org 192.168.0.7 hui.jamsa.fi
This renders 360 frames of hieno.blend by using reppu-server on each host.
>> 5/100 [hostname]
this means "hostname" starts to render frame 5 of 100.
