There is a bug in the RAS (Remote Access Server). This bug effects the dial in modems PPP options file with a bogus 'n' character. This bug is caused from a duplicate variable from one of the language conversion files and effects the server if the DNS server is enabled and/or if there is less than three ISP DNS servers enabled.
If you are not using the RAS (dial in) server then this patch has no purpose on your system.

To install the patches-040-1.pkg patch run setup as follows:
setup->Add-On package menu->Check/install patches

There is a bug in the DNS script that causes local DHCP client names not to resolve inside the LAN. Under a lot of circumstances this bug is never noticed unless you are calling internal dynamic DHCP clients by name.

To install the patches-040-2.pkg patch run setup as follows:
setup->Add-On package menu->Check/install patches

There is a bug in the patch install section of the setup that fails to recognize if a patch has been previously installed or not. There is no fix for this bug and you must recognize what patches you want or need to install. Choosing "n" to cancel any single patch just continues to the next patch option. Also reinstalling the same patch does not hurt the system in any way as well if you are not sure what has been installed previously.

There is a bug in the advanced settings modem configuration that displays "ATZ" as the default modem INIT string until it is actually set by the user. However the displayed "ATZ" is not actually set in the system, it is just displayed. The solution to solving this problem is to actually set the option to either "ATZ" or what ever INIT string you want and from that point forward what is displayed and set in the system will be accurate.
setup->advanced settings->modem settings->d


This bug only applies if you are using a dial up or dial in modem and have not manually set the modem INIT string once.

There is a bug in the patch install script that will fail to find patches if the system does not have the default package URL set prior to checking and or installing patches. The solution to this problem is to run this command from the command line.

pkg

Once this command has been ran once there will not be a problem installing patches. The above solution is also not needed if you have already installed at least one package or ran the "pkg" command from the command console.
