Is there a good/reliable place to procure complete and fully working VAX hardware to run OpenVMS/VMS and Decnet/DEC LAT on? I am hoping to get some non ethernet connectivity solutions too, just to attach to some of my other non-ethernet systems.

Depends on how much you want to spend, too. Scrounging on lists will net you a much cheaper system. Note that DEC was in DIX, so most of the systems will be Ethernet-equipped, especially at the low end. Some MicroVAX and MicroVAX-inspired VAXes will have DSSI, which will support clustering as well as storage, and larger machines will have CI (again, mainly for clustering and storage), but you'll probably have to go up to a bigVAX to get anything alternative - I know XMI had a FDDI adapter)

Does anybody want a microvax 3100 with 1Gb HDD? I bought it to start using OpenVMS again but have had such trouble getting hold of the software I'm giving up. Free to collect to a good home.

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

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
