TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS - The Latest Release,
Topic Area:
Track: Open VMS
Topic: Networks
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/09/99   10:00 AM     Duration: 90 Min.     Room: 4

Presenter:
Matt Muggeridge
Principal Software Engineer, Compaq Computer Corporation  

Abstract:
The latest release of TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS has many new features and services. Features such as CIDR, PathMTU Discovery, BSD 4.4 API and more. New or enhanced services include DHCP Server, DNS/BIND, GATED, NTP, SNMP. This session will describe the new features, capabilities and key changes in this release as well as provide a window into the future plans for this product. The upcoming V5.1 release adds many more new features to the products. Come and hear the pre-announcement of these features. The new features will benefit the network programmer and network administrator. The programmer will benefit from an API, which includes many for BSD style services, which will greatly ease the porting of internal applications from other BSD platforms. The network administrator can now manage TCP/IP via the well-known OpenVMS TCP/IP configuration utility, as well as via standard network utilities commonly available on UNIX systems. This greatly reduces the network support costs as network staff trained in managing TCP/IP on UNIX systems will be readily able to manage TCP/IP on OpenVMS. Finally, the kernel stack is based on the Compaq's Tru64 UNIX kernel, which allows Compaq's OpenVMS implementation to evolve more rapidly in this open networking environment. This session will discuss these benefits in detail and describe how customers can get the most from them.
