Yes, back when I did this sort of thing for a living. I got as far as
working out that the PhaseIV system had to be registered using
DECNET$REGISTER but usually ended up looking in dismay at the mountain of
docs needed to administer OSI (aka DECnet-Plus) and gave up. None of my
customers ever needed OSI apart from one, and that was because they still
had X25 links and had upgraded to Alpha 4100s. What a nightmare that was.
