Remote DECserver terminal server?

» close window

The Question is:

I want to use VT200 terminals to access a remote OVMS computer. How to connect
 a local DECServer to a remote OpenVMS computer over a WAN via routers?

The Answer is :

  Were this particular unspecified DECserver capable of IP, the OpenVMS
  Wizard would assume this question would not have been asked.  (LAT is
  tailored for use on a LAN and is thus not a routed protocol, and use of
  LAT for remote access requires use of a bridge or switch.)  Use of a
  DECserver or other terminal server that does provide IP capabilities
  would permit remote access to an OpenVMS host (itself with the Compaq
  TCP/IP Services or third-party IP package installed and configured) via
  an IP network and IP routers.
