That solved my IVP not a workstation problem... Thanks!
But now while testing ivp told me can`t open Display.
If i start the Vaxstation in the boot system i can use the hole Monitor.
But when VMS started there only 25 usable lines left on Monitor.
What i have done is that i have installed VMS with the alternate Console
mode via RS232.
After that i connect a VGA monitor with a sync seperation adapter and a
keyboard and mouse.
Remember VMS the install Environment?
