Hi,

My DS10L has USB ports on the back.
Any idea if I can boot 8.3 of a USB CD-ROM?

Thanks,

Unfourtunally the built in USB ports are not supported by VMS. There are PCI USB cards that are.


See Freeware V7 CD 3

I just picked up a Belkin USB 2.0 interface card at Office Depot. The card uses the NEC 720101 chip. OpenVMS recognizes it as a USB interface card and loads OHDRIVER but OHA0: and OHB0: stay offline. No, loss, I'll throw the card in an old Pentium system that only has USB 1.1 ports.

it's probably feasible to extend a cable out of the box and connect to an externally-powered IDE ATAPI CD or DVD drive.


I ran a ribbon cable out the back of mine, into an old PC case holding a DVD drive and another HDD (plus power supply), and it works just fine.

I just need to get the floppy drive to work. smiley

I also wonder if I can get the system to write with the drive.

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

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.

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
