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.

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

Just re-visiting.. No more hobbyist licenses? Is that from vmssoftware.com, no 'community' licenses?

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

Anyone know what happened to FAFNER.DYNDS.ORG? I had a hobbyist account here but can longer access the site.

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
