i have very little openvms (version 7-3.1 on an Alphastation 500) experience. I tried, and tried, but i don't seem to find a manual, HOWTO or document of the sort describing how to attach a printer to it. I have a Laserjet 6MP (HP, postscript, parrallel connection) All I read is that parrallel connections are really discouraged... Ok, but is it possible? And if so, where should i look? If not, what are the alternatives (others than buying an DEClaser)
I still have a DEClaser 1152. It's really an HP Lasterjet 3P. I had a gear go bad, and the local printer shop was able to repair it rather cheaply. From what they said, HP almost doesn't like the HP 3P's since they are SO darn reliable.
A little slow, true, but I've gotten tons of services from it.
malmberg December 12 2017 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.
