I am new to OpenVMS. I recently installed SIMH on my red hat linux machine. Using the VAX emulator, I then installed OpenVMS 7.3. VMS installed successfully and works well under SIMH (VAX). Now I need to do some file work in OpenVMS via EDT and TPU. I open a standard terminal and logon to VMS. Then I start editing a file using EDT. The problem I have is the terminal emulator does not emulate a VT100 so it is difficult to do anything other then simple editing of files.

I need to know of a good VT100 terminal emulator for linux and then I need to know how to setup up VMS so that I can log into the VMS system using this terminal emulator.

With the right resource file, xterm can provide excellent VT emulation. I'll post a pointer to my resource file when I get home from work.

If you are connecting from Windows, try putty or teraterm.

Any news with the resource file? :-)

Eric Ahlefeldt's "vmsterm" script works really well as a VT100 with OpenVMS on either VAX or Alpha systems.

Information and download here:

I totally forgot about this thread... Here's the link to my xterm resource file for connecting to VMS systems.

http://nbpfaus.net/~pfau/DECterm

Save this on your system, then:

xrdb -merge DECterm
xterm -class DECterm -e "telnet vaxhost"

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.
