I'm looking for ssh for VAX.
I Installed OPENVMAS 7.3
On the Hobbyist CD there is only TCPIP Services 5.1 without SSH.
Therefore I have to connect to the VAX by using TELNET.
If I try to "export" X like


The Display cannot be opened (I think due to security).

I run into the same situation using my Alpha using TELNET.

When I bought the VAX it came with VMS 5.5-2.
If I boot that system, I can start X-Applications using the same commands and of cause the same X-Sever.


Maybe I can configure the DECWindows in any kind of way to work.

I would be glad to get any kind of solution.

Thanks for your help

I don't know what is actually available but under the new system I think you need to email John Egolf of HP who is administering licensing and software downloads, I believe

Bit late here but briefly I spent 'some time' a while ago, getting SSH to work to allow me to connect from my Ubuntu Linux PC to the OVMS 8.3 Alpha - using my sort of keep trying things till it works approach (stuff I wouldn't dare do on a live system)

Just getting an SSH connection (as I understand your problem) from PC to Vax (or Alpha) doesn't require DEC Windows to be running (if I recall) just setting things at the Alpha end using TCPIP Configuration and modifying some files on the PC UBUNTU system.

I guess 'CREATE TERM' is the simplest thing one can do once DEC Windows is running but I found that nothing would work until I had TCPIP BIND service running and used the TCPIP setup service "SET NAMESERVICE" AND "SET CONF NAMESERVICE" to relate static addresses to server names.

here's a related Vax / Decwindows thread which may shed some light:

By default now, most X-11 servers are blocking hosts that are not in their acceptance list.
A utility, I think from my faulty memory: xauth is used to allow hosts in.

I am not aware of ssh for VAX available from HP, but the Multinet stack from Process Software may have it, and they have hobbyist licenses.

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.
