Author Telnet / Rlogin problem

I have a small VMS 7.1 system (running under freeaxp) which is working perfectly except for one point.

When connecting via telnet or rlogin, VMS doesn't immediately present the user name prompt; you have to press enter, at which point the user name prompt is displayed.

I am not familiar with the mechanics of the VMS login process and have been feverishly digging through the internet all day trying to find a solution or at least hints, to no avail.

Would greatly appreciate any light anyone can shed on this.

Using PuTTY I do not see this behavior. The username prompt appears immediately when the session opens. This link shows recommended PuTTY settings for FreeAXP and Avanti: http://www.migrationspecialties.com/pdf/PuTTY_Settings.pdf

What terminal emulator are you using?

Bruce, thanks very much for your response.
I've tried PuTTY, Teraterm and even see the same result just telnet'ing from a Windows XP command prompt. I went through the link you provided and set my PuTTY setttings per the recommendations, same result. I have other FreeAXP instances which don't do this.

A couple of data omitted in my original post:

(1) the machine behaves normally (instant user name prompt) when initially booted, but goes into this weird state after running for a while. In one instance it was up for about 5 minutes before doing this. In another instance it was a day or so.

(2) FreeAXP is running inside a Windows 2012 VM on HyperV. I have disabled the various TCP offload functions on the NIC in the VM.

I booted a VMS 7.1-2 system yesterday under Windows 2012, but cannot reproduce the issue.

I suggest moving the system to "real" hardware and testing it there. If the problem goes away, it would indicate an issue with the VM settings.

I believe that the "username" will essentially timeout if no input is reveived. The telnet connection will remain just as if the "terminal" were a hardwired one. The <CR> is required to "wake up" the system that the terminal session is now being used. I believe that this behavior is expected. Look from the VMS side to see if the TNA device still exits. If so, I would expect that a <CR> is required to initiate the login.

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?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
