The Question is:
I used to be a Semi-Dec Guru during the 1980's...I am
having trouble doing a 0:: on my Vax and Alpha...
I seem to remember that it had something to do with the
task object and the decnet account.....
The Answer is :
Your question is extremely vague and ambiguous.
0:: is a self-referential address used by the local DECnet host.
If you are trying to perform DECnet task-to-task, you will need a
valid username associated with the task object in the target node's
NCP database -- this is rare on current configurations due to the
security implications of unrestricted task access -- or you will
need to have a proxy established to allow access to the task object,
or you will need to explicitly specify the username and password.
