A fix may be obtained for this problem by using anonymous ftp to
host ( and obtaining image ip_icmp.o. The file
is in binary/record format and should be transferred from a Wollongong
host running either release 2.3 or 3.0.

Also, image named472.sav, can be obtained at this time. This is
the new version of the bind name server from D. Kingston, et al.
The image is in VMS Backup format and should be obtained using
binary/record mode from a Wollongong host.
