After much frustration and waiting I have Perl 5.6.2 installed (I've made my build available too), now I've started on getting CPAN working so installed LWP et al.
My problem is: When CPAN tries to download 01mailrc.txt.gz it doesn't go through the VMS path translation module and I end up with the following error:
Fetching with LWP:
Can't write to '[.sources.authors]01mailrc.txt.gz-1207': file specification syntax error at /perl_root/lib/site_perl/LWP/Protocol.pm line 105. at /perl_root/lib/site_pe
rl/LWP/UserAgent.pm line 844.
Am I missing something here? I don't want to go hacking through LWP/Protocol.pm to fix paths so they're VMS acceptable, but I'm stumped as to how on earth this works on other VMS systems.
I'm running OpenVMS 7.3/VAX, Perl 5.6.2 and whatever the latest LWP (and it's deps) versions are.
CPAN isn't really essential, but it will save a huuuge amount of my time .
jiml November 09 2018 Thank you , Malmberg ! Exactly what I was hoping for . Reset key & all is well . JImL
malmberg November 09 2018 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.
jiml November 02 2018 ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
