Two weeks ago I installed NW 5.1 and BM 3.7. I already installed NW 6
BM 3.7 sometimes but could not fix the NDPS printer problems I had. So

switched back to NW 5.1 cause I already have a server which runes just

fine both BM 3.7 as NDPS.

On the NW 5.1 server I applied all patches like advised at this site:

But still I seem to have some serious problems with BM 3.7 I keep
the messages:

21-08-2003 9:37:44 : PROXY-3.71-
Novell Proxy encountered a fatal error: Detected a Freed IP Cache

0x1510BF1C, Original Freer = 0xC8963B1B

I had the same problem with NW6 but after some patches and I believe
tcp tweaking I solved the problem.

Some facts:
Cache volume is 9 GB has 8 KB blocks no file compressing no block
Starting proxy with CC does not resolve the Freed IP Cache Node

Yesterday the server crashed with an abend:
