I've tried this in every way I can think of. I have a feeling the solution will be incredibly simple, but it has eluded me. So here's my issue:
I have the following version of MultiNet installed:
Process Software MultiNet 5.5 Rev A, VAXserver 3900 Series, OpenVMS VAX V7.3
When I run MULTINET CHECK, I get the following three warnings:
%MNCHK-W-HTNLADDR, address 192.168.1.100 in host table for local host name canth.belanger.com is not an interface address
%MNCHK-W-NSNLADDR, address 192.168.1.100 in DNS for local host name canth.belanger.com is not an interface address
%MNCHK-W-INVLOOKFAIL, inverse lookup on local IP address 192.168.1.100 failed
The interface configuration is defined as follows:
MultiNet Network Configuration Utility V5.5(109)
[Reading in MAXIMUM configuration from MULTINET:MULTINET.EXE]
[Reading in configuration from MULTINET:NETWORK_DEVICES.CONFIGURATION]
Interface Adapter CSR Address Flags/Vector

DHCP Client for the interface is enabled

Do you know the NIC is working?
- Does DECnet work?
- Can you ping your gateway?
Yes and yes. Specifically, for DECnet, I don't have any other DECnet nodes on my network, so I cannot do something other than SET HOST 0.
I can ping the gateway, the host PC, and even google.com.
This all started because I was trying to use the font server in Multinet and it would fail because it could not translate the ip host address of the X11 server, even though it is defined in the HOSTS.LOCAL file. I then tried running the MULTINET CHECK and got the above errors. I have a feeling that it is something in the definition of the se0 device.

RE: Problems getting MultiNet working on simh vax emulator
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.
nmbonao December 08 2017 Is anybody knows OpenVMS 8.2 version downloadable version? or CD copy? Thank you very much

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
