    Attention mark,

    A netmail was sent to the uplink 1:153/7715 and it was accepted by that node. So far no reply.

    Also posted to ASIAN_LINK and sent via 1:153/7715 two fts-0001.016 compliant packed messages - one with a so-called Type 2+ header, the second with an fts-0001.016 compliant pktheader - in seperate pkts of course. Both were accepted but their status beyond that is unknown.

    The first (MSGID: 1:153/7001 5ada6628) is posted to "Doctor Flexy Jerkoff" with
    the subject "jumpin' jack flash". It is the Type 2+ pktheader which has always
    worked to the node in question before this latest breakage.

    The second (MSGID: 1:153/7001 5ada6f1d) is posted to "Ming the Merciless" with the subject "Pathetic earthlings." It probably will end up in the uplink's bad
    area since regular fts-0001.016 pktheaders have never worked there in the past and there is no reason known to 1:153/7001 that it will succeed in being seen beyond 1:153/7715.

    I've also tried Type 2.2 pktheaders and they also worked to that node but did not send a packed message using that pktheader format this time. It was one of
    the few nodes where Type 2.2 pktheaders actually worked.

    There are backups of the two packed ASIAN_LINK MSGs if you, or anyone, in this echo requests them to the working fts-0001.016 compliant uplink which would reveal itself in the PATH at the bottom of this officially sanctioned, fts-0001.016 compliant packed MSG.

    Thank you in advance for you kind attention in this most sensitive matter.

    End transmission.

    Attention mark,

    a netmail to whom? me? i haven't seen it...

    Also posted to ASIAN_LINK and sent via 1:153/7715 two fts-0001.016 compliant packed messages - one with a so-called Type 2+ header, the
    second
    with an fts-0001.016 compliant pktheader - in seperate pkts of course. Both were accepted but their status beyond that is unknown.

    ok, i've not seen either one here...

    The first (MSGID: 1:153/7001 5ada6628) is posted to "Doctor Flexy
    Jerkoff" with the subject "jumpin' jack flash". It is the Type 2+ pktheader which has always worked to the node in question before this latest breakage.

    The second (MSGID: 1:153/7001 5ada6f1d) is posted to "Ming the
    Merciless" with the subject "Pathetic earthlings." It probably will
    end up in the uplink's bad area since regular fts-0001.016 pktheaders
    have never worked there in the past and there is no reason known to 1:153/7001 that it will succeed in being seen beyond 1:153/7715.

    if it ends up in the bad area, that's generally because the sending node is not
    connected to the area in question... have you tried talking to 7715's areafix and making sure you are connected to the area??

    I've also tried Type 2.2 pktheaders and they also worked to that node
    but did not send a packed message using that pktheader format this
    time. It was one of the few nodes where Type 2.2 pktheaders actually worked.

    there may be a setting in that sqafix thing that determines which PKT types are
    recognized... it may be a general setting for all systems or it may be a per-node setting...

    There are backups of the two packed ASIAN_LINK MSGs if you, or anyone,
    in this echo requests them to the working fts-0001.016 compliant
    uplink which would reveal itself in the PATH at the bottom of this officially sanctioned, fts-0001.016 compliant packed MSG.

    if you would like to send them over in a plain zip file, i would be happy to look them over...

    Thank you in advance for you kind attention in this most sensitive
    matter.

    hehehehehe
