SUMMARY: X25 8.0 on SS10

From: Glenn Satchell - Uniq Professional Services (

The problem we were seeing is a bug in X25 8.0. It turns out that the
patch info I gave wasn't quite correct. We had patches 101306-01 and
101263-04 installed.

When we tried to install 101524-01 (X.25 8.0 universal JUMBO Patch) it
gave an error with one of the files. The solution was to back out
101263-04 then reinstall 101524-01. This allowed pad to function
without giving the error message.

We still don't have the link working, but we think that this is due to
some configuration parameters not being exactly right. If any users
have got X25 8.0 up and running in Australia connecting to Austpac then
I'd love to hear from you. Working configuration files gratefully

Thanks to these sun-managers for their help and comments:
