As most of the links on the original pages are now broken I decided to post my own copy of the minimum supported VMS versions for VAX and Alpha systems here so I can find them again!
I first encountered VMS sometime in the 1980’s after having used an ICL1900 and a DEC System 20 and I’ve been a bit of a fan ever since, particularly of the file system which supports file versioning, which is something … Continue reading
Obviously UFW does not affect network protocols like DECnet or LAT but to allow incoming TCP/IP connections to a tap/tun interface that is being used by SIMH or QEMU you need to modify the firewall rules.
I’ve known about this website for a while but although the author had made some (considerable) progress enhancing the VAX simulations in ‘simh‘ until a few months ago there was no code available to run on Linux.
A few links to remind me where to find some useful VMS tools for dealing with zip files and tar archives…
I use the SIMH simulator to allow me to run VAX/VMS on my linux desktop using an OpenVMS Hobbyist license. Compiling simh and getting a simulated MicroVAX II running on my Raspberry Pi was relatively easy.
I have not had much time to post any updates lately – largely because I’ve been so thoroughly distracted by some new old technology.
