I am new to open VMS. I am running Free Vax emulator on windows 7 (64 bit) and install Open VMS on the same. But I need to run TCP IP commands which need license version. Can anyone help me, how can I do Registration on OpenVMS Hobbyist site to get licensee for the same. From where I can get Membership number so that I can register successfully on Hobbyist site and get my license.
I haven't licensed VMS in a long time. I was a DECUS member and then an Encompass member. It seems to have changed again. Now it looks like I have to be a Connect member and now have to pay 50 dollars a year. Is this correct or am I doing something wrong? What is the process now to get a membership number?
Over two years later. I am once again trying to find out how to license my hobbyist machines. I have a new IA64 machine I would love to play with but can't seem to find the path to getting licenses. The answer I received in 2015 worked at that time but doesn't seem to work anymore.
So once again, what is the proper method for getting hobbyist licenses for OpenVMS?
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.
