Hello to all OpenVMS hackers & fanatics around!
I am deeply interested in studying past of DEC and their technologies. My interests mostly related to technical side as to example of uniform, qualitative and uncompromise system design. Pity, but these design goals are very uncommon these days.
Part of my interests involves searching for rare and forgotten software artifacts. So now I'm searching for VAX OpenVMS related software. I am already have in my archives OpenVMS 6.1, 7.2, 7.3 including layered products. I also have VAX/VMS 5.5 but unforunately without layered products. So I am asking for help to all of you, friends. Please, if you have VAX/VMS related software up to 5.5 contact me. Minor goal is to find VAX/VMS 5.5 layered products CD or compilers and TCP/IP packages at least. Major goal is to find most earlier versions of VAX/VMS. Do not let to lost forever past VAX/VMS marvels...
I am already found VMS 5.4 with layered products and ODL (thank you, SMS!). But anything earlier (layered products, ODL, VMS) will be of great interest to me! Please, can you try to restore 4.7 and put it online?
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.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
