I have the red and grey manuals as per a couple that I opened up 4.4 and 5.0 version of VMS.
I got these while I was in school (school was upgrading) and AFAIK, they are close to complete. Of course, being free, they are what they are. Boxes of VMS manuals.
I am willing to ship via USPS anywhere in the world, you pay shipping USPS to your location.
Please, don't ask if I have manual xxxx, I just don't have time to catalog them. If you can use a set of 4.4 or 5.0 manuals (or both) they are yours!
They get recycled in a week to make room in the cellar. (April 11th.2009)

Where are you located, and how big a box would it take to ship one version? I'm in Illinois, between Rockford and Chicago, and might be willing to spring for shipping.

Hi Altivo,
I am in manchester, NH. I will see how many will fit in a box, and get you a weight probably tomorrow when I dig them out.
And can be set usps media mail, which should be the cheapest way of shipping.

Sounds good, thanks. Unless one set is significanlty more complete than the other, I'll go for the grey ones (version 5) rather than the red (version 4?)

I sent you my e-mail and mailing address in a private message here.

I'm not sure what the maximum weight is for a single parcel going media mail, but there must be a limit so you may need two or three boxes. I can pay postage and any cost of packing materials, surely.

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.
