NOTE: A system reboot is required after installing this kit.

This kit has an ECO ranking of 2, with an overall ranking of 0.

Installation of this ECO requires the following ECOs also be
installed:

UCX_LIBRARY_EMULATION-060_A052 (MN 5.1 on all platforms)
MASTER_SERVER-040_A051 (MN 5.1 on Integrity platform only)
UCX_LIBRARY_EMULATION-120_A044 (MN 4.4 on all platforms)
SOCKET_LIBRARY-010_A044 (MN 4.4 on all platforms)

The following problems are fixed by this ECO:

o On VMS 8.x systems and some 7.3-2 systems after applying some
VMS ECO's, SSH sessions would fail with the log file showing an
error of "Failed to get handed-off socket: errno 6". [DE 10636]

o Forwarded X11 sessions would sometimes exhibit delays when updating
the screen, due to TCP_NODELAY not being set on the channel. This
could be modified by setting the NoDelay keyword in the SSHD2_CONFIG
file, but that would affect all connections. The keyword X11NoDelay
has been added that, when set to YES (its default), will set
TCP_NODELAY for X11 sessions only. [DE 10573]

o When file transfers were done in batch jobs, the SSH client would
sometimes enter an infinite loop. [DE 10592]

o The SSH client would sometimes enter an infinite loop when run in
a DCL command procedure. [DE 10614]

o SSH OPCOM session accept and session reject messages would sometimes
display garbage at the end of the message. [DE 10629]

o SFTP no longer attempts to synchronize the execute protection
across systems, which gets rid of a source of errors being reported
when a file is successfully copied. The code to synchronize the
execute protection was based upon the Unix definition of execute
protection, which is very different from the VMS definition of execute
protection. [DE 10622]

o SFTP now disables the SMG unsolicited input mailbox. This
should correct some cases where SFTP can not start SSH. [DE 10602]

o The SFTP server no longer returns error status of "no permission"
for unimplemented requests to perform modifications to file
attributes. Now it returns success and messages will appear in the
log if debugging is enabled. [DE 10557]

o SFTP no longer writes output to the terminal one character at
a time. This makes batch logs readable. [DE 10638]

This ECO kit provides the functionality necessary to support
the VMS Authentication Module (VAM) from Process Software (contact
sales at Process Software or see the Process Software website for
details on VAM). This provides SSH2 authentication via LDAP and
SecurID for OpenVMS VAX 7.3, OpenVMS AXP 6.2 and higher, and OpenVMS
I64 8.2 and higher.
