The Question is:
I currently have a 3100-85 running LAT services and have an established gateway
to our Netware 3.12 Server run Netware LAT services. It is primarily used by
a small number of simultaneous Netware users to log into VMS sessions, run a
few modest applicati
ons and transfer a few small files back and forth using WRQ's Reflection
software utilizing NLAT protocol and WRQ's file-transfer which runs on PC and
VAX platforms. I am in the process of bringing online an Intel-Based Windows
2000 Server and will move
users over to this system once I am able to establish the same VMS usage
funtionality I have presently via Netware.
What would be the most cost effective way to do this? Someone suggested using
a CISCO 2611 Router to accomplish this - but that is a rather vague concept
for me. Is there a software solution or inexpensive hardware solution for this.
The Answer is :
You have reached the OpenVMS Wizard, and not the Network Wizard.
That said, the OpenVMS Wizard would encourage you to review the
available IP-based solutions and IP-based networking hardware.
For a related discussion of PATHWORKS 32 client (for Microsoft
Windows platforms) for use with LAT, please see topic (8593).
For IP-based access, no Microsoft Windows client package is required.
Your OpenVMS VAX version is very old.
