Hello, hobbyist forum!

I'm a Windows programmer with little-to-none networking skills (read: so n00b it hurts). I've just been hired with a company that still uses VMS for their ERP system OS, and I've decided to learn about VMS on my own time.

I have received the hobbyist license from HP, as well as OpenVMS Alpha 8.4. I *want* to configure as much as I can so I can learn, but feel very, VERY overwhelmed by everything. I am running FreeAXP / PuTTY on Windows 10, and can only get as far as successfully installing the software.

Which is why I'm here smiley

I've looked around these forums a little bit (admittedly, probably not as much as I should have), but I can't seem to find the "Hold a rookie's hand" section anywhere.

I've watched YouTube videos from Stephen's Machine Room, but even those don't seem to be helpful.

If Stephen's Machine Room are the videos that I saw about the ES-40, he claims to also be a n00b about VMS.

I have put some stuff here: https://sourceforge.net/p/vms-ports/wiki/Home/ that may be of some help, but they are far from complete tutorials.

Please help to obtain the license on OpenVMS

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?

Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
