The Question is:
There is a VAX machine on my network which prints to a HP network printer.
Recently, the IP address of the printer was changed BUT I don't know how to
change the printer settings on the VAX machine! The error message that appears
UCX$TELNETSYSTEM - OPEN "HP5SI:9100" : REMOTE NODE IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE
Thanks for your time,
The Answer is :
Assuming a version of TCP/IP Services likely to be found on OpenVMS
VAX V5.5-2, use the UCX utility command (or the TCPIP utility command
on TCP/IP Services V5.0 and later) SET NOHOST to remote the entry and
SET HOST to add the new entry. If you do not have the host entered
in your local host database and are using DNS (BIND) to locate it,
you will have to change the address in your DNS server and then
reinitialize your local DNS (BIND) cache, typically via the command
SET NAME/INITIALIZE or similar.
If you have a third-party IP stack, please contact the vendor for
