Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

Sumant,

please be patient. This is a 'hobbyist site' for non-commercial use, so give them a couple of days.

This information is from the DECUServe.org site:

DECUServe transmits membership information to the Hobbyist Program twice
weekly, if you have recently registered on DECUServe please allow time for
transfer and processing into the Hobbyist database.

Sumant,

the SSH login problem (to accounts without a password) at DECUServe.org has now been fixed. You'll just need to press when SSH asks for a password...

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

Just to reinterate - the Hobbyist licenses are for personal non-commercial use only, typically where someone has a VMS machine at home for their own interest and amusement (or indeed frustration).

If you're using this for software development / testing / training / whatever for or on behalf of a commercial organisation, the DSPP licenses are the best way to achieve that. You get those by signing up at http://www.hp.com/go/dspp and then (once your DSPP membership is confirmed) obtain the license PAKs by downloading them from the relevant part of the DSPP web site.

Cheers, Colin (http://www.xdelta.co.uk).

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

Hi Volker Halle,

I have another problem.

I have registered in decuserve.org
and got the membership number.

Then I input the data into http://www.openvmshobbyist.com/licenses.php , press continue, I get nothing at last. No error message, no mail about license, what's happen? Can you help me?

Regards,
Jack

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

Jack - you should ask questions about the Hobbyist programme on the Hobbyist site
http://www.openvmshobbyist.org/forum/index.php

as that is where the people who can fix the problem are to be found

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

It seems that OpenVMS Hobbyists can no longer download patches without first getting a service contract. Can someone at HP address this issue?

Re: OpenVMS Hobbyist License

Larry,

You are correct. That change was discussed at length and the cut-off was in September or October. There was no indication of any changes in teh wind for the hobbiest. Access to patches requires a service contract of some sort. Shoot me an Email for more details.
