I have downloaded the COBOL compiler from http://vmsone.com/~ovmskits/vax_kits2003, but I get errors when I try to install it:

%VMSINSTAL-I-RESTORE, Restoring product save set C ...
%BACKUP-E-READERRS, excessive error rate reading DUA1:[COBOL]COBOL057.C;1
-BACKUP-E-HDRCRC, software header CRC error
%BACKUP-I-SPECIFY, specify option (QUIT or CONTINUE)
BACKUP> quit
%BACKUP-F-ABORT, operator requested abort on fatal error
%VMSINSTAL-E-NOSAVESET, Save set C cannot be restored.
%VMSINSTAL-E-INSFAIL, The installation of COBOL V5.7 has failed.

Save set A and B seems to be ok.
It looks like save set C is corrupt. I have tried downloading it several times.

Can it be downloaded from somewhere else?

perhaps the file attributes are corrupted. What is the result of

DIR/FULL COBOL057.A

?

Yes, I think it is corrupt on the server. I've tried downloading it several times, and since savesets A and B seem OK, I don't think the problem is on my side.

Is there no way to get a VAX Cobol with a hobbyist licence?

> COPY/FTP/BINARY from the OpenVMS host, for instance.

Is that possible from a HTTP server?

wget is what I use - being a Unix guy, that's what I'm used to.

It must have been something wrong with my ISP, translating to text even if I have specified I want binary - I tried downloading the file from a friend's place (same laptop, same version of wget), and now it works! I can finally play with my old Cobol programs again.

Sorry for the noise.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
