Hello

I am trying to recompile the vax software with networking but. I cant seem to get the directory structure correct to get pcap.h and such to be included. So if anyone can give me a working directory structure i can set that up and get it all working .. I am using the mingw compiler

Phil

Thanks In Advance

I have not made any attempt to get SimH/VAX to run under Windows.

If your x86 system supports hardware virtualization, (may need to be enabled in bios), you can try virtualbox with Ubuntu 14.04 and LXD. I do not know if Ubuntu 16.04 has been fixed for libvirt.

But libvirt is just a luxury item, any Linux would work as long as you add extra virtual NICs to the Linux VM. Use 4 total, 2 for the Linux host, and 2 for SimH. One virtual NIC each is bridged to the real ethernet adapter, the other is used for a virtual NIC that allows the SimH instance to access files on the Host and other VMs.

Alternatively, if you have Windows 10, you can see if you can get it to build using Ubuntu under it. Again, this is something that I have not tried.

I do not have a 64 bit Windows system to try running SimH on.

Hello

I have just went to windows due to some gaming issues for my son LOL. If i were running ubuntu 16.04 i would be up and going with the vms operating system. I am still a novice at all of this so there is things on each system i have problems with and little time to learn. I want to use windows so i can use a simple solution for dec windows. I also want to use both vax and alpha just to say i did it LOL... i have downloaded winpcap and the windows build zip and the sdl zip file and have tried several ways to compile the emulators but it still comes back with compiling with out ether support . just wanted to give a more in depth explanation when i entered the first post i was a little frustrated LOL

thanks in advance

You can use virtualbox under windows to run Linux, and still use Cygwin/x or another X-11 emulator on Windows.

With Cygwin/X, you have to do some extra work, since they decided having Cygwin/X allowing connections even to localhost was a security issue, so all X11 networking is disabled by default, and you have to edit one of the Cygwin/x startup files to undo that. (Cygwin/X FAQ steps about just setting parameters were wrong, the last time I tried them.

Mac and Linux operating systems with GUIs have X-11 native that is easier to setup than Windows.

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

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.
