Hello,

I just applied the Interim Release 1 BM3.8.5 and rebootet the server after at
least several months of uptime when the patch files were applied - so it might be
related to 385_ir1; Or something went wrong during the last months of uptime that
way; that a reboot just caused the trouble to be revealed.


Well, on the next reboot after applying BM3.8.5_ir1 I got this on the IKE screen:

-------------------------- IKE SCREEN ----------------------------------
3-19-2008 12:53:41 pm IKESetupSocket: Unable to bind socket!

[snip empty lines]

-------------------------- IKE SCREEN ----------------------------------

At this state these TCP NLMs were loaded:

-----------------------------------

As it's a socket error I thought that applying the latest TCP patch might help
out:

TCP681K, another reboot, but no change at all.


As IKE isn't loading server side all VNP functions are not operational.

PKIDIAG is without errors, if these certificates should interact with IKE as well
(I honestly have to state, that I don't know, if or if not these Certs interact
with IKE ...)


Anybody a quick solution? Otherwise I'll try to backrev to BM3.8.5 and the prior
TCP version.


Thanks for any input.


Regards, Rudi.
