HI,
I have tried multiple times over the last few days to connect to the registration and license site. I can't find an alternative site listed. Has anybody been able to register and recieve PAK's in the last few days?
I used the following address as listed on HPs openvms systems page

thanks Paco

This is the link for "License Registration" listed on the front page of this site (did you try it?):

http://www.openvms.org/pages.php?page=Hobbyist
- but! I could NOT connect to the Openvms.org site when I 'googled' it:
www.openvms.org/ - so it looks like a problem with that site!

Problem was a bad motherboard that has been replaced. Access is restored.

not support telnet either, that I know of.

Use this page to register:

We set this up for HP because of the problems with OpenVMS.org.

I just went to openvms.org and it's working again. No message as to the reason for downtime. The most recent news item is from Oct 9th so they may have had a db issue and lost some posts.

Only the home page of openvms.org is currently working, so for now we need to use the alternate URL above.

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.
