I posted this question on the HP OpenVMS forums but I should probably have posted here since it involves the interaction of FreeAXP/PuTTy and Windows:

"
I have succeeded in installing openVMS 8.4 in FreeAXP. I now have a file named 'openvms_alpha_8_4_update500.zip' on my Windows 7 laptop. This zip file contains 'VMS84A_UPDATE-V0500.ZIPEXE' and 'VMS84A_PCSI_V0200.ZIPEXE'


How do I go about applying these updates? I believe that I have to load my OS CD and choose the upgrade option, but then how do I get these .ZIP files into OpenVMS via Putty so that the upgrade can take place?


Thanks"

Apparently i don't need the OS CD Upgrade option - it's a question of transferring the ZIPEXE files into OpenVMS from Windows and running the ZIPEXEs.

I tried cut'n'paste but this did not seem to work. Advice appreciated.

Set up TCP/IP services under OpenVMS 8.4 (@TCPIP$CONFIG.COM). Then you can FTP the update kits onto the VMS system, extract them, and install them.

Bruce: I think I have configured TCPIP in OpenVMS by using the 'Automatic Configuration of TCP/IP Services Using DHCP Client'.

So assuming TCP/IP is set up in OpenVMS, my next question is how to transfer the files from my Windows laptop. I have FreeAXP/PuTTy running on the Windows laptop - I'm not clear on how I would set up a link between Windows and FreeAXP to do the transfer.

Sorry these are noob questions - I've never done this sort of thing before smiley

Use something like Filezilla to FTP files between Windows and VMS. This is straight forward assuming you have two NICs on the FreeAXP host system and have turned off all Windows services on the NIC assigned to FreeAXP.

Bruce: I'm afraid this is all too difficult for me. I can assign 2 NICs in FreeAXP using thepci11 and pci12 tabs. After that I'm stumped.

I used 127.0.0.1 as the host address, added the system username and password and port 9000. I get a "connection established, waiting for welcome message..."
There is a "Response :"<.. garbage..> (B Virtual serial0)"
then "Error: could not connect to server"
I have chosen the option to force UTF-8 as the character set (as Autodetect gives a message "Invalid character sequence received...select Force UTF-8 ..."

The fact that I got "(B Virtual serial0)" seems reasonably optimistic but where I go from here I have no idea.

Run TCPIP$CONFIG and make sure you have FTP enabled for client and server. From Filezilla, you need to use the IP assigned to FreeAXP. $ UCX SHOW INTERFACE will tell you what it is.

I ran @sys$startup:tcpip$startup and presume that tcp/ip is configured since it didn't offer to autoconfigure using DHCP (I had already done this.)

Running UCX SHOW INTERFACE gave:

Interface IP-Address Network Mask

LO0 127.0.0.1 255.0.0.0
WE0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0

I don't know what LO0 and WE0 are - they aren't shown as devices.

You don't have TCP/IP configured correctly or you don't have a DCHP server handing out addresses. Run TCPIP$CONFIG.COM. If you don't understand what the configuration procedure is asking for, it is time to hit the books.

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?
