Hello Everybody,
As a long in the tooth vms user, I've sadly found myself in a linux environment using edt. Now I used to like edt 20 years ago, but then I was shown eve. smiley
What I want to do now is figure out a cheap way to buy an old vax/alpha box with a HDD, a vms hobbyist licence and eve. I can then use eve in a safe environment and then transfer my programs to a live system.
Is it acceptable to use the hobbyist licence in this way and if so what do you recommend I do?
Thanks
Graham

Yes, this is an acceptable use for the hobbyist license. Your problem will be finding a VAX or Alpha box. If you are patient you will be able to pick a box up off ebay for a reasonable price (depending on where you live). It might also be worth asking around if here or, for example, on the cctalk mailing list, if anyone is thinking of parting with one of their systems. Once networked you can use a transfer protocol such as ftp, or even better NFS to transparently mount a linux filesystem on your VMS box and copy files back and forwards at will.

Regards, Mark.

The hobbyist license is limited to non-commercial use. If you are using VMS in a work related function, then you need either a commercial or development license.

You can use SimH VAX to emulate a VAX on Windows or Linux hardware. You can use FreeAXP to emulate an Alpha on Windows hardware. Both products are free.

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.

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
