  You've helpfully edited the error messages so that they don't show the actual error.

  Don't do that.

  Most of the error messages are pretty clear, and self explanatory.  If you're not sure what they mean, post the error message to the list.  *All* of it.  Don't edit it to remove everything useful.

  We can't either.  We need to see the *actual error*.  Not some edited version.

  And no, disabling Perl won't make the "detail" module work.  They're completely independent.

  If the server is actually complaining that Packet-Src-IP-Address is unknown, then you edited the dictionaries and broke the server.  Don't do that.
