Maybe this is directly linked to the other thread here.
But I wanted to open a new thread anyway.

I also try to get the USB running on my PWS.
VMS doesn't recognizes the internal USB.

I tried with an external PCI card without success.

I just installed OpenVMS8.3 with all the latest patches.

I even tried Debian to make shure that there is no hardware problem.
USB works fine with Linux.


Any ideas ?

Hi,

What kind of card is it? OpenVMS will not recognize every USB card. Looks like older Adaptec cards work best. Also, what slot is it plugged into?

I acually didn't wanted to get the external card working.
I just wonder, if I could get the internal USB working.

the internal USB was never supported. There are some PCI USB cards that work.

Ok, thanks but ...

Some of the hardware mentioned in othe posts are really hard to find in Germany.
Is there a compatibility list of supported Hardware (not only USsmiley available somewhere?

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.

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

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
