status of FTSV

I would like to know the status of FTSV (file transfer spooler for Vms). Is it
- a layered product, with a cost and a licence
- available as a freeware, downloadable from ?
- something else ?

Thanks

Re: status of FTSV

Gerard,

Do you mean the following?


HP OpenVMS Engineering uses a tool known as FTSV for creating self-extracting compressed files using the OpenVMS DCX compression tools, as seen with various OpenVMS ECO (patch) kits. The FTSV and its related FTSO package have only limited availability outside HP, and are not standard products.


Something, I found on the net.

Greetz,

Kris

No

I have first used Ftsv in 1988, I know the product. I want to know if like TSM, it is available, or is it still an asset, or ?

What is the status ?

Re: status of FTSV

In the SPD, I find FTSO

but not FTSV.

But I have not found it in the freeware, as is TSM now.

Re: status of FTSV

Gerard,

According to my (limited) info FTSV & FTSO were retired somewhere around the year 2000.

Re: status of FTSV

I think that as FTSO has a SPD, it is sold.

Re: status of FTSV

Gerard,

Sorry to be obstinate, but according to http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/os/swroll/72.HTML the FTSO product is retired.

I think the best thing to do is to contact HP directly, and ask them.

Kris.

PS: I also found that SPD you mention.

Re: status of FTSV

Well I am not interested in FTSO, only in FTSV :-)

Re: status of FTSV

FTSO was a product but marketed poorly even by Digital standards :-)
It is no longer sold but within hp I think its still in use (SPOOL/COMPRESS to create those .PCSI_AXPEXE files).
It would be nice if it appeared on the freeware or was otherwise available.

Contact yr local friendly hp office to see what they say.

Re: status of FTSV

I did Contact HP and was told FTSO will possibly become available on the next Freeware CD, early next year.

Re: status of FTSV

FTSV & FTSO binary kits (only OpenVMS) are expected to be available on the Freeware CDs in the very near future.

Re: status of FTSV

Well I still do not have the answer, if a customer wants FTSV today, how does he get the kits ? Is there a licence cost or not ?
If yes, how much is it ?

I think I will log a call to HP.

Re: status of FTSV

Ftsv (and Ftso) will be on the next Freeware. I have read in comp.os.vms, Hoffman said the 8 November 2004 was the last date for submission for the next Freeware. And both products were retired 3 years ago.
