I belive that I have a copy of the disks (will verify tonight). But, this request does raise a few questions. Why this specific version? A V7 variant should be must more stable/supported and easier to acquire.

V6.2 is plenty stable. It is also faster than v7. The TCP/IP components under v6 are not so good, but adequate for basic IP functionality. Life after DECnet Phase IV was all downhill anywaysmiley

What makes V6.2 faster than V7?

Is this a Decnet IV/DECnet V issue?

Just less bloat. Boot a V6 versus a V7 instance on the same hardware and see for yourself. V6 systems are a bit faster in our performance testing as well. The same is true from V7 to V8. V7 is faster. Again, less to the operating system. Adding features has a performance cost.

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

Just re-visiting.. No more hobbyist licenses? Is that from vmssoftware.com, no 'community' licenses?

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

Anyone know what happened to FAFNER.DYNDS.ORG? I had a hobbyist account here but can longer access the site.

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
