Bugs fixed in Version 3.4.0


The following bugs have been fixed in SAND Version 3.4.0:


Fractional E1 Timeslot Allocation Error Fixed

SAND versions after 3.25 but prior to 3.4.0 incorrectly allocated timeslots
24-30 for fractional E1 circuits in addition to timeslots entered in wan.conf.
This allocation issue affects fractional E1 support with the WANic 604-E1 and
608-E1 cards only and is fixed in Version 3.4.0.


Clock Inversion On WANic 520 Series Serial Cards Fixed

Previous SAND versions failed to invert the on-board chipset clock for the WANic
521 series serial cards.  An inverted clock can cause problems connecting to
certain CSU/DSUs and in lab crossover configurations.  Version 3.4.0 correctly
inverts the on-board chipset clock for the WANic 520.
