If a VMS upgrade is out of the question, then do as we did and install Process Software SSH for OpenVMS. Support is good and prices cheap.

A better question might be, "What is the
newest TCPIP version which can be used with
VMS V7.1-2, and does it support SFTP?"

I don't know the answers, but I'd expect some
documentation for various TCPIP versions to
be available on this new Inter-Web thing.

Re: sftp and ssh on open VMS 7.1-2

Since you ask for options... The best available option is the software upgrade; to move to a supported version of OpenVMS Alpha, and to a supported ssh and sftp.

This would be OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-2 or (since there are not particular kernel differences with V8.x) to the current V8.3 release.

(Operating on and maintaining older and unsupported product versions never gets easier; the trend is only toward more work and more effort and more cost.)

If maintaining V7.1-2 is a central and overriding goal here, then configure the Alpha behind a firewall gateway, and VPN into the gateway.
