I am a hobbyist located in Madrid, Spain, new to VMS but slowly getting around... I am currently using SIMH to emulate a VAX, and OpenVMS 7.3. I just got to install CC064 after downloading from an FTP and having some trouble with file record sizes
My next item on the list is to make it talk to the outside world -- I followed the taptap method described in Retrocomputing Geek, bridging the network adapter with the TUN device, but I can only make the emulated OS see the host, not the outside world (not even the router!) Maybe it has to do with wireless ethernet magic...
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?
