DECNET / PATHWORKS for Windows XP or Vista

hello all,

I'm trying to install a DECNET support under Windows (XP or VISTA). I found a lot of messages related to Pathworks32 software, but unfortunately on the HP site, the related web page says "the product has been retired, please use a third party software...".

Is there any? :)

May I use, anyway, the latest Pathworks-32 version (7.4 AFAIK) under Windows XP? If yes, where can I find it?

Thanks a lot,
Fausto

Re: DECNET / PATHWORKS for Windows XP or Vista

If you have a license, you may use the Pathworks 32 7.4, which I believe was the final release. There are issues with the distribution, you'll need to contact HP for assorted patches, including issues with multi core workstations. I can't answer for Vista. An older distribution kit if you have one.

Why are you trying to use the DECnet version? You can run the Pathworks Lan Manager/Advanced Server using TCP/IP and use the default Windows networking to reach a share. Granted I used to use Pathworks over DECnet and disable TCP/IP to help minimize security risk.

What is your OpenVMS system? There is no Advanced Server for Integrity. HP is providing Samba.

Fausto,

Don't flog a very dead horse! Forget about using DECnet on a PC, use the native TCP/IP stack. You don't need to install Pathworks on a PC, run SAMBA on the OpenVMS host.

Ok :-)
I understood the message... I'll setup the TCPIP package.

Thanks a lot,
