I have downloaded the COBOL compiler from http://vmsone.com/~ovmskits/vax_kits2003, but I get errors when I try to install it:

%VMSINSTAL-I-RESTORE, Restoring product save set C ...
%BACKUP-E-READERRS, excessive error rate reading DUA1:[COBOL]COBOL057.C;1
-BACKUP-E-HDRCRC, software header CRC error
%BACKUP-I-SPECIFY, specify option (QUIT or CONTINUE)
BACKUP> quit
%BACKUP-F-ABORT, operator requested abort on fatal error
%VMSINSTAL-E-NOSAVESET, Save set C cannot be restored.
%VMSINSTAL-E-INSFAIL, The installation of COBOL V5.7 has failed.

Save set A and B seems to be ok.
It looks like save set C is corrupt. I have tried downloading it several times.

Can it be downloaded from somewhere else?

perhaps the file attributes are corrupted. What is the result of

DIR/FULL COBOL057.A

?

Yes, I think it is corrupt on the server. I've tried downloading it several times, and since savesets A and B seem OK, I don't think the problem is on my side.

Is there no way to get a VAX Cobol with a hobbyist licence?

> COPY/FTP/BINARY from the OpenVMS host, for instance.

Is that possible from a HTTP server?

wget is what I use - being a Unix guy, that's what I'm used to.

It must have been something wrong with my ISP, translating to text even if I have specified I want binary - I tried downloading the file from a friend's place (same laptop, same version of wget), and now it works! I can finally play with my old Cobol programs again.

Sorry for the noise.

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.
