OpenVMS and Windows IP Networking?

» close window

The Question is:

We are using the LAT protocol and WRQ Reflection software to connect our WIN98
 machines to the VAX. How do we set up the VAX to use a TCP/IP connection so we
 can use our WINXP machines to connect to the VAX?
Thank you!

The Answer is :

  At a minimum, IP operations require you to install a TCP/IP stack
  on OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2, either TCP/IP Services or a third-party IP
  stack.  You will then need to configure the IP stack, using the
  product-specific mechanism; see the IP stack documentation.
  As of this writing, V7.3 is the current OpenVMS VAX release, and
  TCP/IP Services V5.3 is the current IP stack version.

  Windows client package, please see existing discussions elsewhere -- the
  Advanced Server package provides file, print and other services for
  Microsoft Windows systems and compatibility with Microsoft networks,
  and the PATHWORKS 32 client package can provide applications, DECnet
  DECnet networking capabilities and other features on Windows clients
  specifically for operating with and for networking with OpenVMS systems.
