Re: set host problem


to find out the version of DECnet in use try NCP SHOW EXE.

If the Executor Identification is 'DECnet for OpenVMS', you can use NCP for further management and troubleshooting.

If it's 'DECnet-OSI for OpenVMS', you need to use NCL, @NET$CONFIGURE and DECNET_REGISTER for network management.

Is this a new system ? Has DECnet been configured correctly ? When/how did this problem show up ?

Re: set host problem

Hello Wong


Before setting anything, lets see what you've got...

The command ...
$MC NCP SHO EXEC will tell us the DEcnet version and phase.

The "remote terminal link" comment, points us to a "remote DECnet area". What communcation connections do you have between the two nodes in question?
Is there a Serial line (RS232 cable), direct or via modem, connected anywhere?

Are there any DECnet error messages appearing on the VMS console?
