Recently I have faced a problem on the virtualization of OpenVMS 7.1 to a windows computer with the help of FreeAXP. In our power plant we use OpenVMS 7.1-1H1 (hp make) as an operating system and to control the process we are using PMS 2.2 which is an application on OpenVMS. Now I have installed OpenVMS 7.1-1H1 ON 255 alpha workstation and created a network with windows computer (in which freeaxp is running and having two network cards). I have disabled

1) Client for Microsoft network
2) File and Printer Sharing
3) Internet protocol version 4(TCP/IP) from one network card (in windows computer).

And I have given

255 workstation decnet= 1.32 ip= subnet

Wndows computer(one network card) ip = mask=

Windows computer (second network card) ip= mask=
And decnet=1.33

I have given the ip and subnet mask in the second network card with the help of freeexp

On 255 workstation (pinging)
I get reply from computer) but did not get any reply from (freeaxp is running).

From windows computer, it is possible to enter inside the 255 workstation by telnet

But from freeaxp (after booting dka0)(in dka0 I have installed OpenVMS 7.1-1H1),
When I have given
Ucx>ping and get error message

When I gave
$ Sh dev
Then I noticed that ewa0 (network card) was offline on freeaxp.

My requirement is to enter 255 workstation from freeaxp with set host and then take image backup of disk dka0 (from workstation) and restore it to dka100 on freeaxp.(windows computer).Is it possible?

My another question
Is it possible to load color full Graphics on freeaxp?

Try changing the DE500 to a DE435. Versions of VMS prior to 7.2 work better with the DE435.

An image backup across a DECnet network is feasible. OpenVMS and DECnet will need to be running on the 255 workstation and FreeAXP. A backup command similar to this should work:

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.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
