<sigh> I wish I'd thought of that, oddly enough, I don't get any messages at all on the VMS server! I'm thinking that my problems might largely be with the way DECnet is configured on the RSTS/E side of things. I've got the System Installation manual, but it's not been of much help. At least the System Managers Manual helped me get LAT working.
