UCX - Where can I get an evaluation license?

Running VMS 5.5-2 VAX 6420, VAX 8650, and VAX 8550. Need to install UCX in order to obtain TCP/IP capability.
Or if you know where I can get Pathway by Wollongong Group, I'd greatly appreciate it.

www.process.com also sell a tcp/ip stack which will run on that version.

Just to add to Ian's response, Process Software has two products with TCP/IP stacks - TCPware and Multinet. They offer 30 day evaluation copies of both.

Re: UCX - Where can I get an evaluation license?

I actually have MultiNet from Process. Unfortunately, it comes with a CD. These vaxes don't have CD's and the software is really too big to try to FTP to the server. I thought the VMS operating system already had UCX on it. All you need is a license to run it. I'm not sure where to get the license or how to get it. Any suggestions?

UCX is a layered product. As such it must be installed.

Look for UCX$* files in SYS$MANAGER: and SYS$SYSTEM: to see if it is.

Starla,

please see the following thread for a previous similar discussion regarding TCPIP:

The following thread has a pointer to a licensing contact list per geography:

What you need is a software loan license for UCX.

UCX is obsolete. It has been replaced by TCPIP.

Bob,

... but not on OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2, where UCX V4.2 ECO 5 is the latest available version of a TCPIP stack provided by Digital/Compaq/HP.

Starla,

maybe issue a SHOW LIC command to see, whether you already have a license, which would enable you to run UCX, e.g. UCX* or NET-APP-SUP-*

I do not see it on these systems. Should I be able to see it without the license?

Starla:
1. You would have to contract someone at HP about an evaluation license for UCX or TCPIP. Be sure to tell them you are running VMS 5.5-2 and have no CD drive. Also tell them what types of tape drives are on your three systems.

2. If you don't have CD drives, you probably have or had TK50 tape drives. I've not sure what version of UCX (or TCPIP [newer HP replacement] would be appropriate for VMS 5.5-2. I don't know whether a TK50 UCX media came with VMS 5.5-2 or not. Even if it did, you would still need a license. You would also be limited by availability of UCX or TCPIP in a tape format that your systems can handle.

Re: UCX - Where can I get an evaluation license?

Starla: 1. There would have to be a license for UCX to be installed.
2. If it was installed, you would be able to see the UCX files.
3. You would not need a license to see the UCX files.

Since you don't see the UCX files, it isn't installed.

Re: UCX - Where can I get an evaluation license?

A huge THANKS to everyone for all your help. I will be contacting HP for a license but I have no idea how I'm going to install it since there are no CD drives. Will check on installing one to the VAX. Thanks, again.
