xmanager for openvms

Can I use xmanager or any recommended tool to connect to OpenVMS from my PC instead of going into the server room on the console. How? Please provide setup details.

Re: xmanager for openvms

Hi,

There are several products for the PC available. I'm thinking of eXcursion, Exceed, Reflexion (X windows for the PC); PowerTerm (terminal emulation); even the "standard" Hyperterm on Windows can be used. Of course, the TCP/IP stacks on both the VMS system & the PC should be properly set up and running.

Hope this helps,
Kris (aka Qkcl)

Re: xmanager for openvms

No problems in using pathworks etc.
But xmanager
"C:\Program Files\NetSarang\Xmanager2\Xmanager.exe" -broadcast

does no list the openvms server.

It only lists Unix Servers.

Please check the issue.

Re: xmanager for openvms

What version of VMS?
What version of UCX/TCPIP?
Have you configured and started XDM (which is
what it sounds like you want to use)?

Re: xmanager for openvms

If the VMS box isn't listed, you may need to enable and configure the XDM server. BTW, the same counts for telnet, otherwise you won't be able to connect to it using the telnet protocol.

So from your console:
$ @sys$manager:tcpip$config.com
Choose 3 (Server components) and enable telnet and XDM (19 and 21 on TCPIP 5.3).
XDM _may_ require some extra configuration to (dis)allow certain systems.

In principle, the console cannot (or should not) be accessable via telnet, for security reasons. But I guess you already know.
