Options for NT Interoperation?

» close window

The Question is:

We are adding an NT segment to a running VAX without TCP/IP support. Do we
need Pathworks to connect/communicate with VAX's for VAXmail and VAX owned
printers?  Are there other solutions for a short term. We are using WRQ
Reflections for an emulation soft
ware. Running Patworks slows our system down considerably.

The Answer is :

  You will want to install TCP/IP Services or similar IP package.
  Packages such as TCP/IP Services provide SMTP mail interoperation,
  POP3 remote mail access, as well as LPR/LPD printing support.
  Microsoft and Compaq OpenVMS operating systems can coexist in an
  IP network.
  Packages such as Advanced Server (PATHWORKS) and SAMBA provide
  SMB-level operations and related, permitting OpenVMS systems to
  operate within Microsoft-defined networks and protocols.
