How to turn on Alphalk2 transfer on OpenVMS

Hi, Pls I want to know the instruction to turn on the transfer files between open vms servers and pc client by using reflection's Alphalk2
This feature was working correctly but since last week it stopped. Could you tell me more info about this protocol (#port, command to start or restart, etc) On the system, the logical alphalk2 is registered:

"ALPHALK2" = "SYS$SYSROOT:[SYSMGR]ALPHALK2.EXE" (LNM$SYSTEM_TABLE)

The ftp protocol (port 21) is working right with no problem. Pls, help me with this topic

Thanks,
Eduardo

Check with the vendor: http://www.attachmate.com/

There are downloads here:

There's a VAXLINK2 tool from this decade at the above link, too.

Attachmate docs:

Or see this newsgroup thread:

As for why this is failing, you'll need to have a look around for whatever log files this stuff uses (on the Windows box and on OpenVMS), and whatever errors are arising.

If you want file transfer via ftp or sftp on your Windows box, then the easiest solution can be to load and use FileZilla here. I'd probably also replace the Reflections terminal client with PuTTY. They're both free, and they work.

The local organization moved off of Microsoft Windows some years ago and I have little recent experience with Windows boxes; the above answer to your Microsoft Windows software question might well be badly off.

Reposting this; porque esto es ITRC.

You didn't specify which version of VMS you are running. On my V7.3-x machines, the VAXLINK prpogram is the one that is executed for transfers.

Thanks to all for your ideas and websites.

I got to execute and analyze the file
"alphalk2.exe" on the VMS. This archive were corrupted. I copied a new file from other vms server and the service started sucessfully. My server is running under OpenVMS 7.3-1

The following steps were describe on: http://support.attachmate.com/techdocs/1210.html

gracias nuevamente, hasta pronto.
