Problems with Hammer of the Scots PBEM

I am very new to Vassal, and have gotten into a pbem with Silent Hunter.

There’s been some odd problems.

I started a log file, drew my five initial cards, and played one(as the English). I sent my log to Silent,and he made his play. When I got his logfile, somehow I had 3 cards instead of four. o.o Also we can’t get fog of war to work.

Would someone like to walk us through doing this through Vassal?
