VAX Timesharing and Pathworks Networking PhaseoutDouglas Link
Beginning May 1, 1998, VAX timesharing and DOS, Windows 3.1 and Macintosh
services using Digital Pathworks networking will cease to be a supported
hardware and software service in the Faculty of Social Science. Complete
withdrawal of these services will not occur May 1; however, the VAX hardware
maintenance contracts will lapse at that time. Licenses for various
VAX system and application software including SPSS and SAS also expires
May 1 and will not be renewed.
If you still use and rely on VAX timesharing or Pathworks, and have
extenuating circumstances, we need to hear from you now. For concerns
or inquiries about the upcoming loss of VAX based statistical and application
software, please contact Carl Kaufmann at ext. 5061. For inquiries
about hardware and connection issues related to Windows 95 or Windows NT,
contact Steve Rumas at ext. 3599. For inquiries about Windows 95
training issues, contact Peter Fewster at ext. 5069. In general, all users
of VAX timesharing or Pathworks networking are encouraged to make their
transition prior to April 30, 1998.
