The Question is:
I have the following configuration.
Digital TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha Version V4.2 - ECO 3
on a AlphaServer 2000 4/233 running OpenVMS V7.1-2
I found the ECO 5 for the V4.2 of the TCP/IP services in your site but it says
that is supported only from OpenVMS v6.2 to v7.1 it says nothing about v7.1-2.
Can I use this patch??. Or is there a way I can get the newest TCP services
The Answer is :
TCP/IP Services V4.2 support was retired on V7.* releases some time ago,
with support having moved to the V5.* releases.
The specified ECO kit might or might not operate on this release, though
the OpenVMS Wizard would not particularly expect the configuration was
tested on OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2.
Please move to a more recent and preferably to a supported configuration
of OpenVMS Alpha and of TCP/IP Services -- V7.2-2, V7.3-1 or V7.3-1 (with
ECOs) would be the prefered OpenVMS releases as of this writing, and
TCP/IP Services V5.3 or V5.4 (with ECO) would be the prefered IP version.
