Whats is the last best patch available for UCX 4.2 ECO 1 on Alpha?

I'm running AlphaServer 4000 5/400

ucx>show version
DIGITAL TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha Version V4.2 - ECO 1 on a AlphaServer 4000 5/400 4MB running OpenVMS V7.1-2

Some times I cannot execute telnet/ftp commands to/from connect other servers. It is found that the present ucx version is buggy. Anyone know the last ECO kit available for 4.2 ECO 1 and if there are any issues with it? Anyone have the link to the kit.

If sometimes you can't telnet or ftp, check
$ ucx sh comm/mem

and see if you have enough buffers, and so

and check
$ ucx sh serv ftp/ful
$ ucx sh serv telnet /fu

is the peak value the same as the max value ?

if so, you need to raise it
$ ucx set serv ftp /maxi=big

the direct link to the patch kit us
ftp://ftp.itrc.hp.com/archived_patches/openvms_patches/axp/7.X/v7.0/tcpip/4.2/dec-axpvms-ucxeco_42_5-v0400--4.README

This was the last kit for UCX V4.2

You do have the option of running TCPIP V5.1 on the (unsupported?) version of VMS you have.

Dear All,

thanks for your time and help.

Is there any known fallback or risk for upgrading the ucx patch kit to 4.2 eco 5.

No.

The Eco 5 is supposed to have all the fixes. And if you discover a bug, I think HP will create a fix for you.

And of course, if you have a bug with Eco 1, if you log a call, I guess you will be invited to apply Eco 5 and call back if you still have the problem.

Welcome to the VMS forum. Note this
http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/helptips.do?#28

I don't know if UCX V4.2 is still supported where you are but ECO5 is the most recent kit and HP will recommend you install it if you contact them about a problem.

If you give details about the problems you are seeing then people here will try and help. However installing ECO5 (with appropriate testing for your environment) would be best.
