Oh, really?

I have version 2.30b1 running on a DECStation 5000/Ultrix machine. I have
the same problem. Yet on our SparcStation, all is well.

DECStation also has problems with MAX-PARTICIPANTS

MAX-PARTICIPANTS 8 Maximum connections (8) exceeded. Try xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
//

is the line I have in reflect.conf on both Sun and DEC, but DEC system
returns error

93: MAX-PARTICIPANTS Configuration file is damaged: Bad CODE value line 93
