For some reason when I test SATAN against VMS systems running either UCX or 
Wollongong TCP/IP stacks the systems crash. 

This seems to be true for the heavy test only.  Other potentially 
coincidental events include:
        1.  First test on a given node; when system reboots and a test
            is again performed a successful test seems to be made.
        2.  The first test uses the FQDN and the second test uses the
            IP address.

I have no idea where to look? The crash logs do not reveal anything helpful.
A message coming from SATAN says:
        bin/udp_scan: are we talking to a dead host or network?

NOTE: The hosts were most certainly alive prior to the test.
