The Answer is :

  Yes, via IP, NFS, DECnet, PATHWORKS, SAMBA, OpenVMS Disk Services, etc.
  In addition, more recent OpenVMS versions support COM and DCOM access.
  (OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 or V5.5-2H4 is rather old.)
  Yes, please see the existing ODBC discussions.  ODBC access is available
  for RMS files and for various databases.
