Is there a way to make the kermit frog jump from my windows computer to my new alpha255 ? And maybe he could do it using the serial cable ? smiley


...well, DEC released the alpha255 on my 28th birthday, thanks 4 that!

Both computers are DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) so you need a cross-over cable. Google for the OpenVMS FAQ for pin-outs.

Generally PUTTY is a good free terminal client.

Thanks for your reply, the commuication between the computers already works with a terminal emulation software like putty, ivt or my latest favorite kermit95 in the trial version, but i would like to move the kermit file transfer software for openvms from the freeware cd01 (available on my windows computer) to the alphastation. i have downloaded the freeware cd on my windows computer, but the alphastation is not yet configurated for something like internet access. I am wondering, why the freeware cds for open vms are not available for download as an iso-image (they tell they are but there is no iso), so that you can burn them and use them directly with the alpha machine.

The last time I looked, the freeware packages were available for individual downloads and as CD-ROMs.

As they are freeware, there are some mirrors of them set up.

The disk format is probably an ODS-2/Files-11 disk image, not an ISO. Many CD/DVD programs can burn disk images. A few of them incorrectly call disk images ISO images. But some CD-burner programs can only burn true ISO 9660 images, or will only burn the ISO 9660 portion of a disk image.

The TCPIP (UCX) license is available as part of the Hobbyist license paks, and Process.com makes hobbyist licenses available for both of their TCPIP programs.

This should make it easy to use networking to transfer files.

Once TCPIP is set up, you can also use CYGWIN NFS as a server, and VMS with TCPIP configured can mount this disks. (TCPIP 5.7 ECO 1-3 can not mount NFS disks)

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.
