Abstract

OSP-COMM-TCPIP-MSGTCP5B11 REASON CODE -6 UNLOADING PACKET
FILTER RULES

Error Description

Attempting to remove packet rules or VPN policy filters for a  
line after all TCP/IP interfaces have been removed from the line
or the line description has been deleted, may fail with TCP5B11
with reason code -6.                                            
                                                               
The leftover packet rules may cause VPN connections to fail.    

Problem Summary

After TCP/IP is restarted, packet rules for lines that no longer
have TCP/IP interfaces defined cannot be removed.              

Problem Conclusion

If rules are being unloaded from a physical interface that is  
unknown to the TCP/IP stack, causing the -6 reason code failure,
the unload processing will continue. This will allow the rules  
to be completely removed.
