The Question is:
I am helping a customer move their applications from an old Vax 4000 to an
Alpha 4100 running VMS 7.2.
Currently they use Pathworks to provide some disk sharing space between the
PC's Network, the MAC network and the vax.
I have installed the lataest version of Advanced Server (Pathworks) on the
Alpha machine and have succesfully set up the PC sharing directories. However,
I can find no documentation about setting up Macintosh shares.
My question is simply, does Advanced Server support Macintosh shared
directories ? If so can you point me towards some documentation that will aid
me in setting these up?.
If it doesn't support Mac, then I will probably have to use NFS however I have
encountered problems with a control Z character being embedded within the Mac
files that they wish to transfer to the Alpha, and the Alpha takes it as end
of file when it clear
ly isn't. Any ideas ?
The Answer is :
A control-Z can exist in a data file, and OpenVMS cares not.
A control-Z on interactive input is assumed to be an EOF (End Of File).
The PATHWORKS Macintosh product was discontinued quite some time ago.
At least one third-party product is available for Macintosh systems
which permits that platform to access to LAN Manager shares, including
those shares that are exported by PATHWORKS and Advanced Server.
