Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

Sumant,

there is no password for the REGISTRATION account.

So it looks like TELNET is blocked from your site and SSH with an account without a password does not seem to work on EISNER.

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

Sumnat,

this is a 'known problem' (registration via SSH is currently not possible) - see DECUSERVE_Forum note 831.*

You need to find a way to login via TELNET for REGISTRATION (maybe from home) ?

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

Hi Volker,

I have completed my registration on DecuServ.org successfully.Now i am able to login into vms node but my question is from where i can get the hobbyist license for non-commercial purpose.I am able to login with Telnet as well as SSH ports.

My user id is do not have enough permissions.

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

To summarize the helpful link given above, log into DECUServe and enter the command HOBBYIST at the dollar-sign prompt. That will print the membership number you need to get the Hobbyist license. If you try your membership number and it does not work, it may be because it can take a few days for DECUServe's new-account information to be transferred over to the Hobbyist website, so a bit of patience is required in that case.

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

Yes you are Keith.I issued the command hobbyist and i got all the imp info but when used the same member number on hobbyist site i got error "member id not found in the database" so i think it will take some time.
