I just restarted my Personal Alpha emulator (on a brand new pc running XPP SP3), and installed OpenVMS 8.3 Hobbyist.
I installed TCP/IP and double checked my config, all seems fine:
I can get out, I can telnet or FTP from outside to my PA (from decuserve.org actually) and I can telnet or FTP on myself (both client and server enabled)
But I cannot Telnet or FTP from my PC to the PA...
The Ping is fine, but no answer from port 21 or 23.
I tried a fixed IP address for PA, same. Fixed address for PC, same.

4. Type DisableTaskOffload as the entry name, and then press ENTER.
5. Right-click DisableTaskOffload, and then click Modify.
6. In the Value data box, type a value of 1, and then click OK.
7. Quit Registry Editor.
8. Restart your computer.
I don't remember the name of that guy who found this solution three years ago, but I owe him a beer !

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?
