Of course you can recognize a VAX when after the connection is made u
listen to a BEEP and u see somenthing like:
Welcome to VAX/VMS V5.4
or somenthing like:

Don't worry about it
other times u see only the Username request without the welcome message.
Well, at the Username request try this accounts:

Welcome to VAX/VMS V5.3 on node LARRY1
try to enter with the LARRY1 account, and I am sure it will work.
Well, if you are an Operator and you want to protect a VAX/VMS
by Hacking attemps into it I recommend you to protect the SYSTEM
account password of course,
and to delete accounts like FIELD, SYSTEST, etc... so the only
After that, start to create accounts for your dependents like:
ID003 : For the password use
... : things very difficult likes:
or is better things like: : S03JDJH28DJH8SFND
AAX01 : 39283812232312333
CAX03 : Don't use password like:
EAX05 : MILAN,INTER,JACK,SPORT,MUSIC ...
Well dear Operator, when you create this accounts don't give the ALL
the SYSTEM one:
UAF> ADD ID001/PASSWORD=34239382333 <--- It's ok.
UAF> ADD ID001/PRIV=ALL <--- It's bad.
You gived the ALL privs to
a normal account and you
haven't defined the password.
Well, that's all.
