CMU-IP is an open-source TCP/IP implementation for VAX/VMS up until
VAX/VMS version 5.5-x.
It is not fully available for later versions of OpenVMS that because
some sources for the last set of update patches never got released to
the public by the maintainer before the web-site disappeared.
For VAX/VMS 5.5-4 on one of the DECUS or Freeware distributions is a
shared image that allows the DECRTL to use CMU-IP instead of one of the
other TCP/IP stacks with out having to do special linking.
I do not know if there was a DEC TCP/IP product for that version of VMS,
or what third party products were available, so that may be your best
chance of getting your old VAX reachable by TCP/IP.
Full sources to GCC/VAX also did not make it onto any DECUS archive that
I have found. The GCC.EXE binary on the DECUS tapes can not be built
from the sources supplied.
