The Question is:
what NIC other than DE435 or DE500 are known to work under OpenVMS
The Answer is :
Many NICs are known to work with OpenVMS, with details of the platform
and the application requirements both being key considerations. In
this case, the relative age of the OpenVMS Alpha release is also a key
consideration -- older systems tend not to support newer controllers.
For hardware configuration and options support information for the
particular AlphaServer or AlphaStation system, please consult the
options list at the AlphaServer website. Also see the OpenVMS
Software Product Description (SPD). Pointers to both are included
in the OpenVMS FAQ.
For information on the DE500 series controller applicability here,
also please see the table in the OpenVMS FAQ. Though you imply other
interests, the DE500 variants are among the widest available and
accordingly among the most common choices for OpenVMS.
