Check out the documentation for either DIGITAL/HP TCP-IP services (UCX) or (better) MultiNet or TCPware from Process Software. It took me a bit of back and forth to figure out the MultiNet/TCPware difference, so here it is: MultiNet is configured in a more "VMS-ish" manner, whereas TCPWare is much more UNIX-y. Pick the one you're more comfortable with.

VMS predates large-scale acceptance of TCP/IP and so the TCP/IP stack and associated software are a layered product that must be installed.

SAQ, the other way around (with MultiNet and TCPware).

Ah, well it looks like I'll have to grab TCPWare instead, then.

Note if you have a VAX box or emulated VAX the DEC TCP/IP services is very probably a very buggy version, at least in Hobbyist 2.0. Don't bother with it.

I haven't worked with Hobbyist-VAX 3.0, so don't know if that changed. Supposedly the last VAX release of TCP/IP services was redone to be much more efficient/fast/etc., but it isn't on any of the hobbyist media, nor does HP have it available for download, so if you're lucky enough to have a friend in the biz you might be able to try it out. The rest of us use Process stuff - which is pretty good.

-- just looked again at the forum, you're not running VAX, but I'm not sure how the Alpha hobbyist versions compared. The HobbyistV3 version seemed OK, but not fantastic.

Actually, I should note (from what the good Hunter Goatley told me not long ago) that MultiNet's interfaces are based on TOPS-20-style interfaces. So, it's still founded on a ‘DEC OS’ and in that sense still more VMS-styled than the DEC UCX, or HP TCP/IP Services as it's called nowadays.

I've used both TCPware and MultiNet, and I prefer the MultiNet interface slightly over TCPware. As has been noted above, both are light years ahead of UCX or TCP/IP Services for flexibility and functionality.

There's also the free HGFTP, which runs under all the stacks. The current release has support for ODS-5 disks, which is something I've never gotten around to announcing.

HGFTP @ Process.com

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.

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
