Animation rendering only the same frame (run through Farm)

Hi, I have followed the instructions for running an animation through the nXt Farm to the letter and the result is always a series of renders of the same frame. This is extra frustrating because of my other issue with the machines of the Farm not using full CPU processing that I am also still trying to figure out topic here. Any idea what could be going wrong? Or suggestions on how to trouble shoot? Have I provided enough information?
