The problems we have been experiencing with the aprs.net.au (VKAPRS)
now appear to have been resolved.  The server has been operating properly 
and has been stable for the last week (previously managed about 2 hours 
before rejecting connections)

We are not 100% sure of the cause, however the issue appears to have
from some network changes, which resulted in the incorrect autonegotiation

of the LAN parameters (10Mb HD instead of 100Mb FD) which in turn were 
causing severe packet loss.

Most of you probably wouldn't have noticed any changes, since 
second.aprs.net.au (VKAPRS-2) took on 100% of the load, however today the 
load is spread 50-50 across both servers, as it should be.  

Thanks for your patience whilst we got this issue resolved :-)

Both servers will be upgraded to the latest version of the software later 
this week, now that the stability issues are sorted.
