Is any depot server or mirror available on internet?

Dear,

Is there some kind servers available on public network or HPUX official site as a depot server, so that I can search/download/install any depot from server rather than download by browser.

I expect this works just like GNU/Debian apt system

Yes,

The software depot is located in software.hp.com. and this is the generally used site all-over the world for software downloads for hp products

Re: Is any depot server or mirror available on internet?

The first two answers did not get your question. As I understand, you want to do something like this:

swinstall -s some.internet.host.com:/depot/software

and expect to install it. If this is what you are after, the answer is NO.

And if you look at the innards of yum or apt-get, they are just facilities to combine getting the package from the internet servers via http, storing it locally in a temporary location and doing a local install then cleaning up the downloaded packages.

swinstall process needs to access more than just the standard ports that no host on the internet will allow access to. It is not feasible to implement such thing for hpux. Heck, I can get to a depot server in my data center from some heavily firewalled subnets. Expecting it over the internet would just be a dream.

Sorry for the bearer of the bad news

Can 'software.hp.com' can work as a depot server, so that I can use it by SD-UX tools

# swlist @ software.hp.com

??

I also would like to install some depot from hpux.connect.org.uk by SD-UX

thanks

No you cannot ..You cannot use an internet depot to be used directly on the server.

instaead you can create a centralized depot and can access the depot from other servers..
