Anyone familiar with the timeline for renewing Hobbyist licenses lately?
I registered on the HPE site.
In the past the turnaround was very quick, but it's been several days and nothing; so curious if this is the new timeline.
Dear fellow HECNETers
I?ve been using Johnnys bridge for a year or so, (thank you Johnny!) and wanted do some additional networking.
Before going full gre peering is there anyone out there that could act as intermediate peer to do some testing while I try not to break anything (!)
On my side I have good network connectivity, but unfortunately no static IP :/
The box I?m using is a 2610XM with ios ver 12.4
Happy if anyone is willing to share their connectivity
Right now I am busily trying to get an installation of the Linux for
DecNet code to work on Slackware-11.0 Linux. The end result there
would be to have it talk to a terminal server, a Model 90L design in
fact. The last time I tried this out it was on a dedicated card
wearing a COAX connector, and in a different machine, again running
Slackware-11.0. It was being uncooperative then. The terminal server
However I have here both versions of DecNet for DOS that were released
via BitSavers, would any of you know if these individuals running
inside DOSBox would besides working, want to connect to the previously
described Linux application?
I figure if I can get that to work, I can sort out the details for the
currently related problem.
Incidentally I am also seeing if I can get that stuff to build
properly on this laptop inside the WSL instance of SLES12SP3. That way
I can take my problems to my hacker community meetings.

Can anybody tell me the secret to making DECnet work on Ubuntu 14.04
(Precise)? Yes, this release is out of date but it's the one I need to
use for other compatibility reasons.
I installed the dnet-common, dnet-progs and libdnet packages from the
standard repository. I configured the /etc/decnet.conf and dnet.conf files
(and I don't care about decnet.proxy just yet). Nothing seems to give an
error, the dnetd daemon is running, and the MAC of my eth0 has been changed
to match my DECnet address. dneigh shows the correct adjacent routing node
on the network.
But nothing can communicate. All the DECnet commands (sethost, dnping,
etc) give "socket: no such device" errors, and all the other DECnet machines
on the network think the Linux host is unavailable.
I seem to remember that there was some problem with the DECnet startup
with upstart, but I don't remember the details and Google isn't being
