The Question is:
I run UCX 3.3 on VMS 5.5-2
I am about to lose a transatlantic link to another bunch of Vaxes via DECnet
(only IP will be supported).
Things I do via DECnet at the moment are
$ set host
Is there any (easy) way these can be done via IP?
I can get round set host by using telnet, but my poor little users will get
I was looking for a set host/IP but there isn't one....
The Answer is :
All of these operations are possible using DECnet over IP, though
you will need to upgrade your TCP/IP and OpenVMS and DECnet to
make use of DECnet over IP -- your OpenVMS VAX, DECnet, and TCP/IP
Services versions are all very old.
DCL commands such as SET HOST/TELNET and COPY/FTP and similar are
all available in OpenVMS V6.2 and later.
Print queues can be set up remotely using LPR/LPD or the telnet
symbiont. See topic (1020) and the TCP/IP Services documentation
