DECnet event 4.2, Node out of range packet loss
Do you have any ideas about what is causing this?
Mike Earwood

The Answer is :

  The reporting node is receiving a packet for a DECnet address that is
  not in the configured address range.
  The following NCP executor settings -- the OpenVMS Wizard will assume
  this is a DECnet Phase IV and not a DECnet-Plus network -- are often
  involved as networks are reconfigured and as they grow:
    Maximum address
    Max broadcast nonrouters
    Max broadcast routers
  In this particular case, maximum address would be the initial assumed
  culprit for DECnet event 4.2.
