APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Incoming LCP packets on a PPP line are not processed after an
ENETDOWN error (errno 3433) has occurred previously on that PPP
line. The ENETDOWN error can be seen in the CLOG for the
Point-to-Point connection profile. To view the CLOG for a
Point-to-Point connection profile use the WRKTCPPTP command and
select option 8=Work with Output for the connection profile. The
CLOG file starts with the characters "CL".

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA40213 :
-----------------------------
This error can occur after a dial or answer connection on a PPP
line is attempted, but the modem negotiation does not complete
successfully. This fix corrects the problem so that any incoming
LCP packets on the PPP line are processed appropriately.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA40213 :
--------------------------------
This problem should correct itself after another dial or answer
connection is attempted for the same PPP line. The problem can
also be corrected by ending the Point-to-point connection
profile using the ENDTCPPTP command, and then restarting the
Point-to-point connection profile using the STRTCPPTP command.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


After the fix is applied, any Point-to-Point connection profiles that
are started on the system must be ended and restarted. To view the
Point-to-Point connection profiles on a system use the WRKTCPPTP
command. A Point-to-Point connection profile can be ended using the
ENDTCPPTP command and started using the STRTCPPTP command.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
