    Congats - it is a bit of a nuisance to get through.

    BTW, you do realize that the CO command from the MP puts you right
    back into that same place you were having trouble with, right?

    You might need to run a VT100 emulator on a PC or something to get it
    to clear up. Putty works really well over the MP network port.

    I use this thing called DECterm or a real term... take your pick from
    a VT220, VT510 or VT525. I have a real VT100 but that's stashed away
    for historical safekeeping.

    The MP port is connected to a terminal server port just like all of my
    other machines. There are services defined there which allow me to do
    a SET HOST/LAT to any machine's console. There's no need for a PeeCee
    and certainly no need for Weendoze.

    Did you have to change anything on that port? I am using a Xyplex, but
    with telnet on non-routable,aliased IPs.

    That's good! Personally, I either use my Mac Laptop or a PC, over the

    managing not only OpenVMS, but HP-UX, Linux, and even IA64 Windows.

    Different strokes for different folks- but Putty works.
