> 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 limitedsupport. There was an experimental DECnet for OS/8 (really for RTS/8) but Idon'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 ifUltrix-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 prettycheap these days.
I have too many systems here as it is. I don't plan on adding
any more. :) I have a Linux box, but I would prefer to run something
like this on a real 11. Any options for software I can legally use?
