First of all: thanks for keeping the VMS hobby community alive and active. This kind of participation and loyalty is not easily seen for other systems.
My problem: I installed 8.3 Alpha on the Personal Alpha. I also installed the PAKs for the base system, TCPIP etc. I upgraded to 8.4 last night. I am assuming my licenses will be valid on the new 8.4 system. I never tried to Telnet from OSX to the older 8.3 installation before.
The licenses seem to be ok. What license am I missing?
$ sh lic/usage
