RAT & VIC Crash on Vista laptop
|Reported by:||piers||Owned by:||piers|
Reported by Tobias at AGSC on 4 July: "The problems with the vic and rat under Windows Vista Business, from VIC I get a message telling me
IP_ADD_MEMBERSHIP: A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable host.
whereas RAT crashes immediately.
I got PAG including vic and rat working through a CISCO VPN client over wireless networking, and it continued working on wired networking without the VPN client once it worked."
On 21 July: "This version seems to have the same problem, after some more investigations we can pin the problem down to Network interfaces which don't have any IP address assigned. vic and rat seem to connect to the first Network interface they find. To reproduce the problem I switched on the bluetooth interface and the wireless networking. This explains the strange behaviour I had befor when starting the VPN client seemed to fix the problem. It wasn't the VPN itself but the assigning of an IP address to the Wireless network card. For the moment we can use the old version of vic and rat. We will document the problem and recommend switching off all network devices which have no IP address assigned."
