Hi.
I'm an italian CS student with an interest in Operating Systems, and I just found out about the OpenVMS Hobbyist program. I think this is a rare opportunity for us to get to know how real OSes worked - and in this case still do :-)

That said, our local DECUS chapter has been dead for years, so I joined HP Connect at Guest-level membership about two weeks ago, but I still haven't got my membership number.
I also tried to contact them using their form but to no avail.
Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

TIA,
Matteo

Connect have said they know there are issues with this but do keep chasing them.

Are you aware of this

I wasn't aware of that program, but unfortunately my university is really busy with post-earthquake recovery (I live in L'Aquila) so I doubt they are interested in a similar project at the moment.

Guess I'll just have to wait a little longer than I thought smiley

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.
