Assuming you've got a gnubg with socket support (I think Nardy's
builds have this, but I'm not sure).

Start a copy of gnubg, you may as well use the nogui version. This
will be the master.
Enter the command


where means the local host, use port 4000

Start another copy of gnubg.
Go to Settings->Players. At the bottom, click external and fill in

Start a match/session whatever and watch it play. 

I believe, from looking at the code, that the master server will be
playing using the Evaluation settings for cube and chequer play, not
the player 0 settings.
