Under Windows, I have had enough problems with PuTTY as the boot console that I quit using it and just leave the Windows command window as the console. It is clumsy, but does the job. I use PuTTY to connect to serial and telnet sessions and it works very well.
I've just tried using Tera Term Pro emulating VT320 and the 6c disappeared. However, the first key I pressed at the >>> prompt did not appear until the second time and the rest is normal.
Wonder if it's the terminal emulation mode that's giving the problem.
Btw, is it possible to autoboot from, let's say, DUA0 without having to keep typing >>> b dua0 each time I open a telnet console? The SimH 'dep -b bdr 0' didn't seem to work. I've tried >>> set boot dua0 and that didn't work either. Just wondering.
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.
