Author Looking for TCP/IP version 5.1 (not an ECO)

Hi all,

I've inherited an Alpha server that has a horrible bug in TCP/IP that makes it so that I have to reboot it daily. I have about 200 users (100 concurrent) that will use up all of the connections (or something) and cause the machine to not allow any new connections after 24-48 hours. So I've been rebooting it daily in order to keep it running - too high maintenance for me!

I've done quite some research into this and found that a likely solution would be to upgrade from TCPIP V5.0A ECO 3 to a later version of TCPIP, such as 5.1 or 5.2.

The problem is that I can't find the actual full installer package anywhere on the internet - (impossible)! Does anyone have this file, or any file like it?

DEC AXPVMS TCPIP V5.1-15 - the axpexe file

Version I'm running (from "tcpip show version")
DIGITAL TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha Version V5.0A - ECO 3 on a AlphaServer 1200 5/533 4MB running OpenVMS V7.2-1

Again, I've tried the various ...ECO.axpexe files, and they are simply updates to the existing version of TCPIP I'm running, I need to upgrade the version of TCPIP.

Thanks for any assistance or advice that can be given.

Do you have any OpenVMS installation media? The TCP/IP kits are on the VMS installation CD.

The CDs I have don't seem like what I need. I have the original CD from when it was installed, called "OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1 Operating System", Disc 1 of 1, July 1999, Volume Label ALPHA0721, AG-QSBZD-BE.

I have several other disks that were in a binder called "Compaq System Tools", Disc 1 of 1, September 1999, AG-RJV3A-RE.
OpenVMS Alpha Software Product Library Disc 1 of 16, September 1999 Volume Label AXPBINSEP991, AG-R9S9G-RE.
And the rest of that set of 16 disks.

Those don't seem to be the disks I need. Am I mistakin?

I could also use TCPIP version 5.4 if anyone has that or knows where to get it. Thanks.

In case anyone else has this problem in the future, I called HP, got transferred to OpenVMS support, got transfferred to software support for OpenVMS Alpha, spoke to a gentleman named Marc, he was very knowledgeable and helpful. He's putting the file I need into an FTP site and I'll be able to install that to upgrade my version of TCPIP. So it looks like HP DOES support OpenVMS and will provide software upon request.

I hope this helps someone in the future.

Mount the 7.2-1 CD and take a look at the top level directory. There should be a directory beginning with TCP that contains the current TCP/IP kit for that release of VMS.

If it is not on the system CD, mount the first CD of the Product Library set and look at the list of products. Search on TCP. The listing will tell you the version of TCP available, the disk it is on, and the kit directory name.

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.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
