Hi everyone. I have a workstation of my dads that has been sitting in the basement powered up all these years spinning the power meeter needle outside the house. My goal is to get it running on the internet serving up some html pages.

The system.
4000-60 VMS v6.2
40MB memory
2 RZ26L 1GB disk drives
1 CDROM
ESA0 network device

At one point ~98' I had the network set up to a Slackware Linux system. It has been a really long time since I have messed with this.

Upon boot, pretty much every license it has on it has expired. Guess I could set the clock back and may be the easiest solution since it does not matter to me. Write a little C code to get the "real" date off the network if need be.

Anyways before I get too inventive with that maybe it would be good to see what hardware improvements can be done on this thing for cheap. Need to open this thing up and see what ebay has to offer I guess.

Good to see HP has allowed this madness to continue. My first VMS systems I wrode code on was the 11/780, 11/785, MicroVAX II, 8550, 8350. Thank goodness at the time all I needed to know was the boot sequence on the PDP11s these systems replaced.

The WASD web server would be suitable for that system. Hopefully you should be able to acquire some more disk space or a system not quite as pre-historic.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
