Hello,

I am a newcomer with respect to tinkering with VMS systems. Have just managed to install a SIMH VAX with VMS and am about to bring a real Microvax back to life.

The "thing" I am sitting in front of is normally a linux-PC (Ubutu, wich uses the gnome desktop).

Until now I have not yet found the optimal terminal emu program to connect to my VAXes:
* GNOME-TERM supports a history scroll bar but somehow the screen control sequences are not right - when I use EDIT the screen messes up
* SCREEN supports screen control very nice, but it doesn't give me a history to scroll back.

Any recommendations?

Kind Regards

Micha

On my Linux laptop, I run X within ssh (ssh -X <nodename>smiley. It's then a simple matter to issue the following command:

$create/terminal/detach

and, voila, a DECTERM window pops up. By far the best "emulation" available!

I use this from Fedora (it's actually from a Desktop icon):

xterm -title "Hobby" -fn 10x20 -ti vt220 -rightbar -bg black -fg orange -e
ssh -l davidc 72.64.118.245

The only thing I have to do is CTRL-BUTTON1 and make sure the BS/Delete setting and "VT220 Keys" is set. As yet, I haven't gotten the resources set up right to do that automatically, darn it...

I might be old fashioned but I use a DEC Alppha XL300 with windows NT and a program called TeraTerm with a cable between the serial ports.

I set terminal to ANSI and 132 columns, and view locally as black with green text.

What Proprietary Operating System Do You (Mostly) Use: If all you need is a terminal emulator for command line access, you should definitely have a copy

This topic is old enough that there might be new information available.
I have not touched a VMS system for almost seven years, but I recently
saved an Alpha from the scrap heap. When I was active with VMS I found it much more convenient to have many sessions open on timesharing systems from my VMS workstation than to use only the workstation or to use a VT to the big box. What software is available to run multiple sessions to the Alpha from a windows system? Open source, freeware, or low cost preferred since I don't know if I will spend much time on the Alpha. Thanks.

Thanks for all the pointers. I'll check them out.
The system is a prototype AlphaServer 1200. It has two ports for video terminals, and one seems to work as a console. However, the box will be
in the basement and I will be on the second floor, so the only connection will be ethernet. Fortunately I still have a hub with a thinwire port.

Thanks again, for this help and for helping to keep the world's best operating system alive.

The best linux based terminal emulator is xterm - it has the most complete support for some of the less well used escape sequences. However, if you can get over occasional issues with backspace and delete being defined wrong creating a decterm back to your local box is the way to go.

on windows i use a very nice proggy : IVT , multitabbed session, multi support , many , many functions ... i connect unix,linux and vms systems with it , it can autologin your sessions (encrypted password) ... etc

on linux i use terminator , a multi tabbed vt102 xterm

both works like a charm smiley

xterm has the best VT2xx support on Linux (and I guess any derivative which probably try and make it more user friendly)

On Windows putty does a good job, or if you can find it Powerterm 525 (which was distributed on with Pathworks).

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.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
