Computers running either Windows NT 4.0 Server or Windows NT 4.0 Workstation may randomly stop responding if the DEC Pathworks 32 version 7.0 protocol is also running.


To determine if Pathworks 32 version 7.0 is causing the system to stop responding, remove the Pathworks 32 protocol from the system, and then monitor the system for an appropriate amount of time to see if the system continues to stop responding.

If the system does not stop after the Pathworks 32 protocol has been removed, contact DEC and obtain Pathworks 32 Version 7.0a. Several fixes to DECnet have been incorporated in Pathworks 32 version 7.0a.
