PC Access to OpenVMS Disk Storage?

» close window

The Question is:

Dear Decus,
Writing from a small Irish Company.  We have a MV3180 DEC VAX Computer.   We
 have it integrated into our small 4 PC LAN.
Does software exist so that we can map the Hard Disks on the VAX to our PC
 Server.   Ie that we will be able to browse and exchange DATA easily through
 windows explorer.
We have WRQ Reflections terminal emulation and FTP but we specifically want to
 map the VAX Drive like we would MAP any other PC Drive.
Is any of this software available as Freeware?   Can you tell us where we could
 buy the software.
kind regards,
Michael McLoughlin.

  Also please the OpenVMS FAQ pointers to SAMBA.
  Depending on the particular system purchased, you may already have
  a license for the PATHWORKS product.
