OpenVMS licensing
 
 
Introduction
Assuming you get your licenses from OpenVMS Hobbyist (http://www.openvmshobbyist.com/), and you're a member of DECUServe or Connect (http://www.connect-community.org/), you need to get those two PAKS:
- OpenVMS (VAX or Alpha) Base License
- OpenVMS Layered Products (104 PAK's!)
note. you can register at DECUServe through telnet
note. Connect Community is the new HP user group. DECUS France doesn't exist anymore, for example. Neither does HP Interex France.

With the first one, you'll enable the system, with the second, various products including UCX (TCP/IP).
