I noticed that whenever I boot up SimH VAX inside Putty under Windows, I get this peculiar message:

Connected to the VAX simulator

Why does the 6c always occur such that I need to do a carriage return first that result in a 22 ILL CMD, followed by a b dua0 to boot normally?

Under Windows, I have had enough problems with PuTTY as the boot console that I quit using it and just leave the Windows command window as the console. It is clumsy, but does the job. I use PuTTY to connect to serial and telnet sessions and it works very well.

Have you tried using the delete key in putting (configured to send a delete, not backspace of course) to delete those characters?


I run SimH in a Linux VM.


I do not know if the console is trying to auto-detect what type of terminal is attached and is failing to detect putty.

I've just tried using Tera Term Pro emulating VT320 and the 6c disappeared. However, the first key I pressed at the >>> prompt did not appear until the second time and the rest is normal.
Wonder if it's the terminal emulation mode that's giving the problem.

Btw, is it possible to autoboot from, let's say, DUA0 without having to keep typing >>> b dua0 each time I open a telnet console? The SimH 'dep -b bdr 0' didn't seem to work. I've tried >>> set boot dua0 and that didn't work either. Just wondering.

At the VAX console prompt (>>>smiley you will need to issue a SET BOOT DUA0:

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

Just re-visiting.. No more hobbyist licenses? Is that from vmssoftware.com, no 'community' licenses?

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

Anyone know what happened to FAFNER.DYNDS.ORG? I had a hobbyist account here but can longer access the site.

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.

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
