Re: Telnet hangs in OpenVMS 8.3

Hi,

this is (most likely) a known problem with TCPIP V5.6.

http://forums12.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1113896

It's suppposed to be fixed in TCPIP V5.6 ECO 1 or by the workaround of setting DEVICE_NAMING = 4

Re: Telnet hangs in OpenVMS 8.3

The recommended way is to make an entry in the file SYS$SYSTEM:MODPARAMS.DAT and to run the AUTIGEN procedure afterwards:
@SYS$UPDATE:AUTOGEN SAVPARAMS TESTFILES [FEEDBACK]
You may then check the report file SYS$SYSTEM:AGEN$PARAMS.REPORT and if all looks file, redo the AUTOGEN with SETPARAMS instead of TESTFILES as last phase.
A call @SYS$UPDATE:AUTOGEN HELP will give you an introduction in AUTOGEN.

Note: A change of DEVICE_NAMING requires a reboot, so installing the TCPIP Eco may be o.k.

Apart from changing of SYSGEN, you also mentioned about TCPIP Eco ? Is this is an individual patch ? from where i can get this ? is this patch is part of latest patch bundle of 8.3 ?
