March 3, in the egp-people list (March 3, in the egp-people list (EGP-PEOPLE@bbnccv).

Most, if not all, users of the Kirton EGP code on the Arpanet have seen
bad EGP checksum errors in recent weeks. The immediate source of the
problem seems to be the following line(located with grep):

defs.h:#define MAXPACKETSIZE 576

....

For now, redefining MAXPACKETSIZE to 1006 should take care of the
immediate problem for Arpanet and Milnet sites ...

---- end of bug fix message

If your site is running EGP and you are not now receiving the EGP-PEOPLE
((egp-people@bbnccv) mailing list, I invite you to register your local
distribution list (e.g. distribution list (e.g. egp-people@your-site) or yourself for the list. Send
a note to a note to egp-people-request@bbnccv.
