Change Host IP Address?

» close window

The Question is:

How can we change the IP address to our vax box, in order to insert it into our
 local network?

The Answer is :

  Information on changing the IP host address(es) is mentioned in various
  existing Ask The Wizard topics, including the following:
    (430), (1069), (3991), (5777), (5906), (7710), (8004), etc.
  The OpenVMS FAQ contains pointers to the OpenVMS documentation website;
  to the website with the OpenVMS operating system documentation and also
  particularly with the TCP/IP Services HTML-format product documentation
  necessary for this particular question.
  Specifically, the TCP/IP documentation will encourage you to select the
  DHCP client support for the IP address (enabled using the UCX$CONFIG
  tool on TCP/IP Services releases prior to V5.0, or the TCPIP$CONFIG
  tool on V5.0 and later), or you will want to use the UCX$CONFIG or the
  TCPIP$CONFIG tool to change the static IP host address for the OpenVMS
  VAX host.
  The DHCP client support is first available with TCP/IP Services V5.3.
  For DHCP discussions, please see topics including (7954) and (4507),
  and (of course) the TCP/IP Services documentation.
  For a third-party IP stack, please contact the third-party vendor.
  There is no OpenVMS VAX V7.3-1 release.
