Subject: DMC11 at Ebay
Who is bidding for the DMC11 at Ebay?
I'd just like to know who else (besides me of course) is interested in
that very special old DDCMP communication adapter. I cannot imagine
that any DMCs are still in productive use today, so there's probably
another collector out there somewhere ...
I would be nice to get in contact with that special person (no matter
who wins the auction) to exchange experience.
My motivation to own a DMC11 is to run DDCMP DECnet under VMS V2.x
(no Ethernet support with VMS V2.0 yet) on my VAX-11/750. There are
still some lesser problems to overcome, e.g. obtaining DECnet for VMS
I know the bidder might as well (or even with greater probability)
want the DMC11 for his/her PDP-11 rather than for a VAX.
Maybe one day some crazy collectors will connect their VAXen or
PDP-11s via DMC11s and dial-up lines every now and then?
I have a DMC11 that I plan to install in a PDP-10 KS10 so I can run
DECnet to a VAX.
I even have a synchronous null modem.
