The Question is:
why can't I do puts ? initially thought was something connected with vms
permissions, but can do a make directory ok. Appreciate any ideas you might
The Answer is :
The errors imply problems building the data connection on the PC client,
which would imply problems in the PC client IP stack. (425 is a session
disconnection message within FTP.) That said, much has changed in the
TCP/IP stack since V3.1 was available; since 1994.
Consider enabling and using OpenVMS security auditing and checking the
OpenVMS accounting logs here, as a start. Also enable FTP logging and
check the contents of UCX$FTPD.LOG; of the server FTP log.
Your OpenVMS VAX and TCP/IP releases are both outdated, and both releases
are no longer supported. Your system is well below the minimum supported
TCP/IP version for the OpenVMS VAX V6.2 release: V4.2 with the current ECO
is the minimum.
