There is a new installation proceedure for TCP/IP 4.25 patch D.
Please grab these install notes and review even if you have already
installed the patch and not seen any problems.
There may be problems related to the security patch that you just haven’t
run into yet.
There are three possibilities:
You never installed tcp/ip security patch. But you installed Patch D.
No problems, everything is fine.
You installed tcp/ip security patch, then installed Patch D.
You should have seen problems related to ftpd, pppd, tn3270, and map3270.
If you don’t use these you won’t have seen problems, but should “fix” your
system before you do.
You installed tcp/ip Security Patch, then installed patch D, then fixed
things by un-installing and re-installing the security patch. In this
case, depending on the order in which things were done your system could be
in a slightly inconsistant state.
If you did case 2) you should un-install patch D, then follow the new
If you did case 3) you should un-install both patch D, and the security
patch (order probably doesn’t matter, but do the reverse of install if you
can remebmer). Then re-install patch D, followed by security patch (order
is very important!)
Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.
