Environment

Reflection for HP version 13.0 through 14.x
Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS version 13.0 through 14.x
Reflection for ReGIS Graphics version 13.0 through 14.x

Situation

The file transfer feature in Reflection terminal emulators allows you to send and receive files between a workstation and a host computer. For best results, always use the most recent version of these files.

This technical note describes how to identify your version of the Reflection protocol host file transfer program (PCLINK2, VAXLINK2, or unxlink2), and how to download the most recent version.

Resolution

Identifying the Version of the Reflection Host File Transfer Protocol

To identify the version of your Reflection host file transfer protocol, follow the steps, below, that correspond to your host program.

PCLINK2

  1. Connect to your host computer.
  2. At the MPE prompt, enter:
RUN PCLINK2.PUB.SYS;INFO="VERSION"

unxlink2

  1. Connect to your host computer.
  2. At the UNIX system prompt, enter:
unxlink2 -v

VAXLINK2

  1. Connect to your host computer.
  2. At the VMS prompt, enter:
SHO SYM VAXLINK2
  1. Enter one of the following commands, depending your VAXLINK definition:
    • If VAXLINK2 is defined as a VMS symbol, enter:
VAXLINK2 V
    • If VAXLINK2 is not a VMS symbol, enter:
SHO LOG VAXLINK2
    • If VAXLINK2 is a VMS logical, enter:
TEST:==$<file spec from logical definition>
TEST V
    • If VAXLINK2 is neither a VMS symbol nor a logical, enter the commands below. (These commands assume that the current directory is the login directory where VAXLINK2 is located.)
