> What DEC OS's support DecNet?
Pretty much all of them, although some better than others. VMS, RSX,
TOPS-10, TOPS-20, RSTS/E all had DECnet, and even RT-11 had some limited
support. There was an experimental DECnet for OS/8 (really for RTS/8) but I
don't think it was ever finished.
>Will BSD support DecNet?
BSD is not a DEC OS. Sorry :-) Ultrix-32 had DECnet, but I don't know if
Ultrix-11 ever did. Maybe somebody else knows?
Linux even has DECnet, but of course that won't run on your -11.
You can always get a VAX or Alpha workstation - many of them are pretty
cheap these days.
