VAXstation 4000 as X Terminal?

» close window

The Question is:

I have VMS systems (VAX 6.2 and Alpha 7.2-1) and an old VAXstation 4000 Model
 90. Can the VAXstation be setup strictly as an X Terminal like the old VXTs?
 I'd rather not boot the VAXstation as a fully fledged VMS node.

The Answer is :

  The Freeware EWS package will work with older VAXstation systems, though
  the OpenVMS Wizard does not specifically know that it will work with the
  VAXstation 4000 model 90.  (A system which -- at 32 VUPS -- is among the
  fastest uniprocessor VAX systems ever built, assuming sufficient physical
  memory is configured.)
