Local fix

  • Circumvention:
    None
    

Problem summary

  • Users Affected:
    All
    
    Problem Description:
    OFTP ISDN inbound connection attempts from a specific partner
    fail with NullpointerException.
    
    Platforms Affected:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    When the session during an SSID exchange does not have Partner
    data set, it throws a null object when it is trying to
    get the CAPI_EXCHANGE BUFFER size. As part of the applied fix,
    when this condition happens, 128 is selected as the default
    size.
