Is there a GUI utility that I can use to browse/copy files from our VMS system from a windows server/workstation? There was a program call NetExplorer, but it's no longer available.

Thanks! That worked. I tried a few other FTP programs, but they would not list the directories when I attached to a drive. This one did. Only problem now is that all the files retained the version info in the file extension. For example, test.doc looks like test.doc;1. Can this be filtered out?

OK, I"ll look into it more to determine what we're running. My best guess is that the stack is really old. The person who administers the server hasn't updated it in years. He's off indefinitely at the moment so I"m on my own trying to do this. My goal is to copy our user files off this box, and onto a Windows server for easier access. Once that's done the server get retired so I'm not concerned about firewall access or anything else. I've already did a test copy of one major share and it worked fine except for the semi-colon & version number extension that were copied. I could run a utility to remove them, but there's many many files...

when I type "product show product" it says TCPIP V 5.0-10. Does that help any?

My only goal is to copy off the existing user files. Once that's done I'd like to take the Alpha out back and work it over with a bat! Most of it is word & excel files, nothing really that complicated.
The person in charge of this server for the last 10 years was brutal & didn't upgrade anything. We have to keep the connected workstations at SP#1 just to make them work. He can't, or doesn't want to upgrade it. That's why I'm removing the files & building a MS server. He went off on sick leave just before this was supposed to happen & didn't leave any instructions. We do have a support contract with digital/HP, but they are just brutal. I've had a ticket open for a week asking the same question I posted here and still no solid response. Another reson to drop the over priced server & support!

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.
