- Previously, Abstract Machine Test Utility (AMTU) did not handle the name of the interface correctly under certain circumstances. As a consequence, AMTU failed to obtain a list of network interfaces to test. With this update, the interface hardware type and carriers are obtained from the /sys/class/net/ directory. Now, only an Ethernet and a token ring can be used, and a carrier must be present. As a result, AMTU handles the new network interface names as expected.
- Prior to this update, AMTU ran network tests on interfaces configured with a static IP that did not have an existing connection, causing those tests to fail. With this update, AMTU no longer runs tests on interfaces that are not up.
- Previously, the name of the network interface was restricted to 4 characters on 32-bit systems and 8 characters on 64-bit system due to using the sizeof() operator instead of the strlen() function. As a consequence, AMTU did not correctly display the full network interface name in certain portions of the output. A patch has been applied to address this bug, and AMTU now always displays the full network interface name as expected.
