The Question is:
Is it possible to run DEC LAT over a broadband VPN connection? If yes what
routers do you recommend/suggest?
The Answer is :
This is not particularly an OpenVMS question, and thus the OpenVMS
Wizard would tend to encourage direct contact with your prefered
network services provider or support organization, or with the HP
LAT is a non-routed protocol based on Ethernet-style network
communications. LAT assumes direct access to an Ethernet-style
connection and network.
LAT communications have been seen to be successfully bridged and
switched, but the OpenVMS Wizard is aware of no available LAT router
nor of any supported LAT-capable tunnel or gateway.
LAT has largely been replaced with telnet-capable terminal servers,
and the later members of the DECserver family and most other terminal
servers can support both LAT and telnet, or support telnet.
For assistance with the DECserver family, please contact Digital
Network Products Group (www.dnpg.com), the DECserver product vendor.
