Hi,

Ive just gotten into my vax and the license shows I have multinet.

Im not sure where to start on configuring this. I found some pages on multinet, but im not sure of the syntax changes I need to make, i.e. what to chnage "device" to in the examples.

When I do a DIR I can see DNS$CACHE lines etc, so something is installed.

Also, how do I get the output shown one page at a time?

Thanks,

Daniel.

When I type in commands like finger, it says;

MULTINET:FINGER
Image file MULTINET:[SYSEXE]FINGER.EXE;
Error in device name or inappropriate device type for operation

Likewise if I type MULTINET CHECK

Been at this for hours now, put in another disk which has vms 6.1 and ucx 3.3 (and a multinet licence). Had a look around in ucx and ran

@sys$manager:ucx$config

Went throught the steps couldnt get itnto work. When it comes to defining interface it says

Error defining interface ze0
.
.
.
Error defining interface ae0
.
.
.
Error defining interface zea3

Some of these have old tcp/ip addresses in them that i cant get rid. I deleted all the communication controllers, and the config program recreates them. If I try to set nointerface it says the internet is not running.

Ze0 and ae0 have the same ip.

Any ideas?

I haven't used Multinet for a few years now, but process.com has online documentation, plus a Hobbyist program(me), and (as of a few years ago) a very nice, helpful human (hi, Hunter!) who ran the Hobbyist program(me). Give the site a shot - I found Multinet much more usable and feature-rich than UCX/TCPIP...

As Brad says, manuals are available online. Here are some useful commands:

$ MULTINET SHOW/ALL
$ MULTINET SHOW/STATISTICS !Shows interfaces.
$ MULTINET SHOW/INTERFACE SE0
$ MULTINET SHOW/IP
$ MULTINET SHOW/CONNECTIONS
$ multinet configure /menu !Multinet Configuration Menu System
$ MULTINET CHECK !Check that Multinet is running.

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.
