Compaq TCP/IP TCPIPALP_E02A51 Compaq TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS ECO Summary

TITLE: Compaq TCP/IP TCPIPALP_E02A51 Compaq TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS ECO Summary New Kit Date : 30-AUG-2001 Modification Date: 10-SEP-2001 Modification Type: Moved TCPIPALP_E02A51 kit to /tcpip directory from compaq/tcpip directory tree. NOTE: An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file. For OpenVMS savesets, the name of the compressed saveset file will be kit_name.a-dcx_vaxexe for OpenVMS VAX or kit_name.a-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha. Once the OpenVMS saveset is copied to your system, expand the compressed saveset by typing RUN kitname.dcx_vaxexe or kitname.dcx_alpexe. For PCSI files, once the PCSI file is copied to your system, rename the PCSI file to kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe, then it can be expanded by typing RUN kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe. The resultant file will be the PCSI installation file which can be used to install the ECO. Copyright (c) Compaq Computer Corporation 2001. All rights reserved. PRODUCT: Compaq TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS OP/SYS: OpenVMS Alpha SOURCE: Compaq Computer Corporation ECO INFORMATION: ECO Kit Name: TCPIPALP_E02A51 DEC-AXPVMS-TCPIP_ECO-V0501-152-4.PCSI ECO Kits Superseded by This ECO Kit: DEC-AXPVMS-TCPIP_ECO-V0501-151-4.PCSI ECO Kit Approximate Size: 48,624 Blocks Kit Applies To: Compaq TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha V5.1 OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1,V7.2-1H1,V7.2-2 and V7.3 System/Cluster Reboot Necessary: Yes Rolling Re-boot Supported: Information Not Available Installation Rating: INSTALL_UNKNOWN Kit Dependencies: The following remedial kit(s) must be installed BEFORE installation of this kit: None In order to receive all the corrections listed in this kit, the following remedial kits should also be installed: None ECO KIT SUMMARY: An ECO kit exists for TCP/IP V5.1 on OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1 through V7.3. This kit addresses the following problems: PREVIOUSLY UNDOCUMENTED BEHAVIOR: ------------------------------------------------------------ 1: PTR 30-7-49 Dependency for PPP on OpenVMS 7.2 and above ------------------------------------------------------------ IPCP negotiation of IP address between PC client and OVMS PPP server fails to assign client an IP address. Many problems were fixed in the OpenVMS PPPDRIVER. Therefore it is required that all customers running PPP on OpenVMS versions 7.2 and above install a patch for PPPDRIVER. The OpenVMS PPPDriver patch for OpenVMS V7.2-1H1 is: OpenVMS VMS721H1_PPPD-V0100 PPPDriver ALPHA 7.2-1H1 ECO The readme can be viewed at: http://ftp.support.compaq.com/patches/public/vms/axp/v7.2-1h1/ dec-axpvms-vms721h1_pppd-v0100--4.README ------------------------------------------------------------ 2: PTR 70-5-1502/70-5-1518 Dependency on VMS Kits ------------------------------------------------------------ Problem: 1: When one composes a mail message in VMS mail and enters an SMTP address at the To: prompt and at the Cc: prompt the address originally entered at the Cc: prompt is not put into a Cc: RFC header in the SMTP message but is instead put into the To: RFC header. 2: In some cases the order of the recipients as entered by a VMS mail user at the To: and/or Cc: prompts is not preserved in the corresponding RFC headers. 3: When one composes a mail message in VMS mail and enters multiple recipients all within the same SMTP%"" jacket any recipient address that has no domain part, i.e. is a simple user name, can be assigned the wrong domain by the SMTP software. Dependencies: For this fix to be effective the following VMS kits must be installed. Alpha: V7.2-1 VMS721_MAIL-V0100 V7.2-1h1 VMS21H1_MAIL-V0100 V7.3 VMS73_MAIL-V0100 VAX: V7.2 VAXMAIL01_072 V7.3 VAXMAIL01_073 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Corrections for COMPAQ TCP/IP Services V5.1 BFS Images --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ECO 1 updates -------------- ECO A 10-MAR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$CFS_SHR.EXE V5.1-15A Problem: NFS problem with file aliases where certain file aliases created on the VMS side are only partly visable on Unix. Solution: Treat all file aliases to directories as directories when MODUS_OPERANDI bit 16384 is set. Reference: PTR 70-8-42 ECO 2 updates -------------- ECO B 30-MAR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$CFS_SHR.EXE V5.1-15B Problem: For file systems exported with /options=Name_Conversion, any particularly long filename can map to the VMS file ".;" which can be disconcerting and confusing. Solution: Properly detect when NonVMS-to-VMS name conversion fails and report this as an appropriate error back to the client (e.g. NAMETOOLONG). NonVMS filenames that cannot be converted into a legal VMS ODS-2 filename can only be accommodated within a Container File System. Reference: PTR 75-45-2223 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Corrections for COMPAQ TCP/IP Services V5.1 BIND_RESOLVER Images --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ECO 1 updates -------------- ECO A 10-MAR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$IPC_SHR.EXE V5.1-15A Problem: The dynamic updates being sent by the load broker to a Windows2000 DNS server were failing with an error similiar to: unknown response: ans=0, auth=1, add=1, rcode=3 Solution: Modify the check on the response packet from an SOA query to accept packets that have an empty answer section, auth=1, and add=1. Reference: PTR 70-5-1572 / CFS.80807 / Req Id: BE_G01053 ECO B 16-MAR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$IPC_SHR.EXE V5.1-15B Problem: FTP, telnet, and possibly others were failing with 'unexpected nameserver error' when trying to connect to a host that had an underscore in the host name. Solution: Loosen the restriction on the host name checking. The resolver now uses a different routine to process host names. This routine verifies against a larger character set which includes underscores, et al. NOTE: In order for hostnames containing underscores to be allowed using applications such as TELNET and FTP, the following line must be added to the options section of your BIND servers' TCPIP$BIND.CONF configuration file: check-names master ignore; for example: options { directory "SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$BIND]"; check-names master ignore; }; Reference: PTR 70-5-1641 / CFS.82606 / Req Id: BCSM30T81 ECO 2 updates -------------- ECO C 30-APR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$IPC_SHR.EXE V5.1-15C TCPIP$NSLOOKUP.EXE V5.1-15B Problem: Both nslookup and SH HOST would exit prematurely if the server timed out. They would not exhaust all elements of their search path list. Solution: The resolver will keep trying elements of the search list until either it gets an answer or the list is exhausted. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2213 TCPIP_BUGS Note 1324 ECO D 9-MAY-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$IPC_SHR.EXE V5.1-15D Problem: Applications such as telnet were getting a BIND error when attempting to use IP addresses if the BIND resolver was disabled and the address did not exist in the LOCAL host db. Solution: Add a call to res$$fakeaddr() in the TCPIP$GETIPNODEBYNAME() routine in the IPC layer. This will check to see if what we were passed was an IP address and perform any required formatting to it before passing it back. Now we pass back the address in the hostent instead of an empty hostent and an error. Release Note: In V5.1, applications may have experienced errors when using IP addresses if the BIND resolver had not been enabled and the address had not been defined in the LOCAL host database. This problem has been fixed. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2217 UCX Note 8430 ECO E 9-JUL-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$IPC_SHR.EXE V5.1-15E Problem: The load broker was accvio'ing during startup.

Solution: No longer use the sending of a packet method to start the BIND server. Instead, incorporate the TCPIP$BIND_STARTUP/SHUTDOWN command procedures to do the job. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2201 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Corrections for COMPAQ TCP/IP Services V5.1 BIND_TOOLS Images --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ECO 1 updates -------------- ECO A 9-MAR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$ACCESS_SHR.EXE V5.1-15A Problem: TCPIP SHOW HOST was ACCVIO'ing in certain cases when retrieving the BIND database. Solution: NSLOOKUP was modified to deal with large DNS messages. Reference: PTR 70-5-1560 / CFS.80586 / Req Id: GB_G01030 PTR 70-5-1588 / CFS.81412 / Req Id: GB_G01110 ECO 2 updates -------------- ECO B 30-APR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$IPC_SHR.EXE V5.1-15C TCPIP$NSLOOKUP.EXE V5.1-15B Problem: Both nslookup and SH HOST would exit prematurely if the server timed out. They would not exhaust all elements of their search path list. Solution: The resolver will keep trying elements of the search list until either it gets an answer or the list is exhausted. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2213 TCPIP_BUGS Note 1324 ECO C 26-JUN-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$ACCESS_SHR.EXE V5.1-15B Problem: TCPIP SHOW HOST/NOLOCAL could result in an ACCVIO under certain circumstances. AND Some BIND error codes were not getting returned and displayed properly. Reference: PTR 75-61-663 / TCPIP_BUGS Note 2297 ECO D 27-JUN-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$ACCESS_SHR.EXE V5.1-15C Problem: The SHOW HOST command could hang on its second issuance when inside the TCPIP utility.

Solution: Force the Alpha path to use the same LIB$* routines as the VAX path. Reference: Internal testing. ECO 2 updates -------------- ECO B 29-MAR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$DNFSACP.EXE V5.1-15B Problem: The NFS client does not send a set attribute to the server after writing a file that is the same size or smaller, letting it default to 512 bytes. Initial fix attempt caused a data corruption regression. Solution: Send a setattr procedure to set the size after the re-write, being careful not to confuse this situation with the one that led to file corruption. Also, backported V5.1 change so the NFS client now reports the correct allocated size instead of the EOF mark. Reference: PTR 70-5-1562 / CFS.80621 / Req Id: MGO34019B / UCX Note 7934 PTR 70-5-1604 / CFS.81793 / Req Id: MGO56058B ECO C 24-MAY-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$DNFSACP.EXE V5.1-15C Problem: Setting the tpu$journal to point to a mounted directory and editing a file using edt terminates with write error due to an unsupported operation. Solution: Return SS$_NORMAL instead of SS$_UNSUPPORTED for the various caching options. Reference: PTR 70-5-1633 / CFS.82535 / Req.

The Kbytes/sec rate reported is also incorrect. Solution: The bytes transferred count is now maintained using an extended precision representation (64-bit long long on Alpha, two 32-bit longword array on VAX). The Kbytes/sec rate is now calculated using double floating-point precision. Also took this opportunity to include an estimate of a sequential or fixed-length file's byte length in the "150 Opening data connection for..." message. Unix servers do this and it gives a GUI FTP client something to use for progress bars or %complete screen updates. Note this size is not 100% accurate due to file conversion that might occur for the transfer. Reference: PTR 70-5-1342 / CFS.75202 / Req Id: ZUO12931A ECO B 29-MAY-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$FTP_CLIENT.EXE V5.1-15B Problem: $ COPY/FTP of a non-existent file produces no error message. Now it does. Reference: PTR 70-5-1643 / CFS.82649 / Req Id: BCGM3102F / UCX Note 8421 TCPIP_BUGS Note 1240 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Corrections for COMPAQ TCP/IP Services V5.1 FTP_SERVER Images --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ECO 1 updates -------------- ECO A 19-FEB-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$FTP_SERVER.EXE V5.1-15A Problem: FTP Server ACCVIO'S because the reallocation of the session table on the 129th simultaneous connection fails. Solution: Dynamically reallocate the session table. Session table grows by MAX_SESSIONS. Reference: PTR 70-5-1408 / CFS.76668 / Req ID: HPAQ51QP2 ECO 2 updates -------------- ECO B 24-APR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$FTP_CHILD.EXE V5.1-15B Problem: FTP> DIR search-list-logical can encounter the server errors "550 file not found" or "550 unsupported file structure level" when the search-list-logical is composed of concealed members. Problem only occurs when file details are requested from the server, and not when just filenames are requested. Solution: Modified the FTP server to better detect the transition from one concealed device entry to another within a search-list- logical's SYS$SEARCH() results, so it has the proper device open for obtaining the requested file details. Reference: PTR 70-5-1648 / CFS.82762 / Req Id: NL_G01281 ECO C 25-APR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$FTP_CLIENT.EXE V5.1-16A TCPIP$FTP_CHILD.EXE V5.1-15C TCPIP$FTP_SERVER.EXE V5.1-15C TCPIP$MSG.EXE V5.1-16C Problem: For file larger than 4 GB, the FTP Client incorrectly reports the number of bytes transferred. The Kbytes/sec rate reported is also incorrect. Solution: The bytes transferred count is now maintained using an extended precision representation (64-bit long long on Alpha, two 32-bit longword array on VAX).

The FTP Child process will now log session info, requests, and responses in its SYS$LOGIN:TCPIP$FTP_SERVER.LOG file if the logical TCPIP$FTPD_LOG_CLIENT_ACTIVITY is defined. This logical can be defined on a system-wide basis by an administrator (so all users' FTP session logs include extended logging), or by a user within their LOGIN.COM file (so just that user's FTP session logs include extended logging). Reference: PTR 70-5-1661 / CFS.83150 / Req Id: NL_G01322 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Corrections for COMPAQ TCP/IP Services V5.1 INET Images --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ECO 1 updates -------------- ECO A 31-JAN-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$INETDRIVER.EXE V5.1-15A Problem: The INETdriver can cause a PGFIPLHI crash in VMS EXE$CANCEL. Solution: Fixed the INETdriver to make sure the CCB is paged into memory before returning to EXE$CANCEL. Reference: PTR 70-5-1566 / CFS.80053 / Req Id: BRO41389B --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Corrections for COMPAQ TCP/IP Services V5.1 INSTALL Images --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ECO 1 updates -------------- ECO A 23-FEB-2001 Alpha and VAX Sources: TCPIP$V51_CONVERSION.COM Problem: TCP/IP Services doesn't support SMTP as an IPv6 capable service. Solution: Modified UCPs service database module and the V5.1 rollover command procedure to add support for SMTP as an IPv6 capable service. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2075 ECO B 28-FEB-2001 Alpha and VAX Sources: TCPIP$SHUTDOWN.COM Problem: TCPIP$SHUTDOWN.COM fails to: 1. return correct severity level for shutdown errors, and 2. only delete service-enable logical names on successful shutdowns. Solution: Modified the TCPIP$SHUTDOWN.COM command procedure to return correct severity level for shutdown errors, and only delete service-enable logical names on successful shutdowns. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2161 ECO C 28-FEB-2001 Alpha and VAX Sources: TCPIP$CONFIG.COM Problem: SYSCONFIGTAB.DAT database file is not created by TCPIP$CONFIG.COM Solution: Modified TCPIP$CONFIG.COM to create TCPIP$ETC:SYSCONFIGTAB.DAT database by extracting its template file from SYS$LIBRARY:TCPIP$TEMPLATES.TLB. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2180 ECO D 10-MAR-2001 Alpha and VAX Sources: TCPIP$INET_STARTUP.COM Problem: Ip6rtrd process disappears. Solution: Delay start of TCPIP$IP6RTRD process so that IPv6 is configured on each interface. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2205 ECO 2 updates -------------- ECO E 12-MAR-2001 Alpha and VAX Images: TCPIP$VERSIONS.EXE V5.1-15E Problem: TCPIP SHOW VERSION does not display the eco number properly. Solution: Corrected printf format string in version.c. Reference: Internal testing. ECO F 23-APR-2001 Alpha and VAX Sources: TCPIP$PROXY_STARTUP.COM TCPIP$PROXY_SHUTDOWN.COM Images: TCPIP$MSG.EXE V5.1-15B TCPIP$UCP.EXE V5.1-15I Problem: UCP's LOAD PROXY command generates error messages if there are no proxy records in the proxy database. For example, $ tcpip load proxy %TCPIP-E-PROXYERROR, error processing proxy request -TCPIP-W-NORECORD, information not found -RMS-E-RNF, record not found %TCPIP-E-PROXYERROR, error processing proxy request -TCPIP-W-NORECORD, information not found -RMS-E-RNF, record not found Solution: UCP Changes: 1. Modified routine TCPIPCP$LOAD_NFS_PROXY (in TCPIPCP$PROXY.B32) to correctly load nfs proxy records; enhanced TCPIPCP$LOAD_NFS_PROXY to signal the number and type (i.e. NFS) of proxy records loaded. MSG Changes: 1. Added PROXYLOADED informational message for UCP. INSTALL Changes: 1. Modified TCPIP$PROXY_STARTUP.COM and TCPIP$PROXY_SHUTDOWN.COM as follows: a. correct text of module abstract b. event logs for loading communication and nfs proxies Reference: PTR 30-7-11 PTR 30-7-48 PTR 30-7-59 TCPIP_BUGS notes 1708, 2138, 2203 ECO G 23-APR-2001 Alpha and VAX Sources: TCPIP$INET_SHUTDOWN.COM Problem: The TCPIP$INET_SHUTDOWN.COM command procedure generates errors while stopping the TCP/IP Kernel after configuring IPv6 network components. Solution: Changed how TCPIP$INET_SHUTDOWN determines if IPv6 network components are started. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2214 ECO H 23-APR-2001 Alpha and VAX Sources: TCPIP$CONFIG.COM Problem: TCPIP$CONFIG fails to recognize NTP as a service bundled with TCP/IP Services. Thus, TCPIP$CONFIG fails to manage NTP properly. Solution: Corrected NTP service's name-to-string mapping symbol so that NTP is recognized as a service bundled with TCP/IP Services. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2219 ECO I 15-MAY-2001 Alpha and VAX Sources: TCPIP$CONFIG.COM Problem: TCPIP$CONFIG's "ALL DISABLE" command processing generates error messages when disabling services already disabled for startup. Solution: Corrected error handling to disable services already disabled for startup without generating error messages. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2224 ECO K 15-MAY-2001 Alpha and VAX Sources: TCPIP$CONFIG.COM Problem: The TCPIP$CONFIG.COM command procedure fails to: 1. create ANONYMOUS account without errors when configuring ANONYMOUS FTP 2. translate the TCPIP$FTP_ANONYMOUS_LOG logical name when creating log file for ANONYMOUS FTP account 3. create TCPIP$NOBODY account when configuring NFS Server 4. use distinct UIC group numbers when creating ANONYMOUS FTP and TCPIP$NOBODY accounts Solution: Corrected account creation and configuration bugs in TCPIP$CONFIG.COM Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2273 ECO L 15-MAY-2001 Alpha and VAX Sources: TCPIP$CONFIG.COM Problem: tcpip$config.com does not reset the UIC member number for new groups. Solution: Corrected 'set_uic_member" subroutine in TCPIP$CONFIG.COM to allocate uic member numbers in strictly ascending order. Reference: TCPIP_BUGS Note 2274 ECO M 15-JUN-2001 Alpha and VAX Problem: Compaq TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha Version V5.1 - ECO 1 can be installed over TCP/IP 5.0A with no indication of a problem.

The Kbytes/sec rate is now calculated using double floating-point precision. Also took this opportunity to include an estimate of a sequential or fixed-length file's byte length in the "150 Opening data connection for..." message. Unix servers do this and it gives a GUI FTP client something to use for progress bars or %complete screen updates.

The problem arises in a select() call which is aborted due to receipt of a signal. In reality we had two problems. First, in some circumstance select() was returning the wrong status code, SS$_SHUT rather than SS$_CANCEL. Second, if the select abort occurred in a very small window of time, there was a danger of an incorrect value being left in a UCB field and this incorrect value would lead to select() failing forever more within the context of the current process. Solution: The solution to the first problem is to simply change the returned status code so that the caller is satisfied. The solution to the second problem is to clear the offending field when a select is aborted.

The direct cause of the crash is the routine KVCI$$RECEIVE that is called directly from the TNDRIVER. The crash occurs because between the notification of an event on the socket and the call to KVCI$$RECEIVE, a pointer to the socket structure has been zeroed. Solution: Modified KVCI$$RECEIVE() to validate the pointer before use. Also modified inet_sbwakeup() to guard against a zero in the SO$L_UCB field.

Either can safely be shipped to a customer running older version of the other image; they just won't get the new XON_ANY_CHAR functionality. Problem: 70-5-1601: Telnet client or user was sending ^S XOFF stopping output, and not following up with a ^Q XON to restart output. This can lead to a situation where the Telnet server doesn't detect when client has closed, leaving the TNA device active and the user process logged in. Only remedy required system administrator to manually $STOP the affected process. 70-5-1602 & 70-5-1261: The TNDRIVER crashed due to unexpected recursion resulting in the same packet being freed twice. Solution: 70-5-1601: Telnet server no longer ignores socket events like closure when unable to pass any further data up to the TT driver or application because input is disabled (either due to Typeahead buffer being full or use of ReadSync terminal characteristic). Furthermore, to help deal with defective Telnet client or inattentive user that sends ^S XOFF but doesn't follow up with ^Q XON, an implicit ^Q XON will occur upon receipt of any character (not just ^Q) from the client if the system logical TCPIP$TELNET_XON_ANY_CHAR is defined as "1".

Either can safely be shipped to a customer running older version of the other image; they just won't get the new XON_ANY_CHAR functionality. Problem: 70-5-1601: Telnet client or user was sending ^S XOFF stopping output, and not following up with a ^Q XON to restart output. This can lead to a situation where the Telnet server doesn't detect when client has closed, leaving the TNA device active and the user process logged in. Only remedy required system administrator to manually $STOP the affected process. 70-5-1602 & 70-5-1261: The TNDRIVER crashed due to unexpected recursion resulting in the same packet being freed twice. Solution: 70-5-1601: Telnet server no longer ignores socket events like closure when unable to pass any further data up to the TT driver or application because input is disabled (either due to Typeahead buffer being full or use of ReadSync terminal characteristic). Furthermore, to help deal with defective Telnet client or inattentive user that sends ^S XOFF but doesn't follow up with ^Q XON, an implicit ^Q XON will occur upon receipt of any character (not just ^Q) from the client if the system logical TCPIP$TELNET_XON_ANY_CHAR is defined as "1".
