I find that with my Multinet 5.1 stack that I can get the first
of these tests to pass both if I switch to icmp ping protocol and if I
set proc/priv=all.  I cannot get it to pass with icmp and a NETMBX,TMPMBX

The second test failure is due to an attempt to make vms illegal file
names in the test script (the filenames are illegal on ODS-2 - they could
be made legal on IDS-5 if appropriately escaped).  A simple patch would be
to simply use:

Unfortunately I have not tested that on a platform outside of VMS
(but I have a hard time seeing how it would do harm there).

I then reported a separate problem:

Sorry but I have made no progress on this problem.  I am concerned.
