Seeking OpenVMS Networking?

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.
  For assistance in acquiring a solution specifically tailored to your
  local system and networking needs, please contact your local HP sales
  office directly.
