2998Connection retries that seem to ignore retry parm?

      Was checking in on things this afternoon and noticed KB0WSA's connection (an AXUDP link) into my BBS was "stuck" in BPQMailChat. I also noticed an endless string of connect requests to the node (KB0WSA-6 MOBRA) showing in monitor that are ignoring the retry counter parm (7 in this case):

      [17:25:57T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:01T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:05T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:09T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:15T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:19T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:23T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:27T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:31T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:35T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:39T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:43T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:47T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:51T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:55T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:26:59T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:27:03T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:27:07T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:27:11T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>
      [17:27:14T WA4ZKO-5>KB0WSA-6 Port=8 <C C P>

      Looks like it's firing off every 4 seconds per FRack on that port, but not giving up after the 7 tries. This just goes on and on.

      Forcing a disconnect of KB0WSA in BPQBBS doesn't change things, the string of connect attempts continues. A few minutes ago KB0WSA apparently rebooted their node and things returned to normal after a few minutes.

      While I was watching things I also noticed another oddity, if I did a N MOBRA the 2nd number (obs counter ?) in that response was really high in the 150-160's and slowly dropping in value. Yeah, you read that right....in the high 100's. I cleared the screen so I can't cut-n-paste it here, but it was way above the 5 or less that it should of been.

      All other links to other nodes/BBS were working fine.

      Maybe Billie or K.O. can chime in on what was happening on their end this afternoon, but it was clear that my node didn't handle the dropout of that connection properly.

      Been a few other reports of folks seeing similar on RF. Did we ever find out what happened on this one:

      Looks to be pretty much what I saw.
