I have figured it out. In simh the command terminal will not work when even set to vt100. How i fixed this problem was to set a terminal port up in the vax.ini file "set console port 6969" then i downloaded putty. Run the emulator when it says waiting for tenet connection start putty with the telnet and port settings and all works ok...
Thanks for all your input on this I will now save my silly questions for something more important LOL

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.
