Not long ago, I got an account (login) on a computer that doesn't

Not long ago, I got an account (login) on a computer that  doesn't
have "joe" text editor, which I used earlier. Since I don't know
where to find it, please can someone answer me where I should
look for it (or send me the program - by mail or somehow).

This is the prompt that shows up when I login:

Digital UNIX V3.2D-1 (Rev. 41); Wed Oct 30 09:31:17 MET 1996
Digital UNIX V3.2D-1 Worksystem Software (Rev. 41)
                      DEC Server 1000 4/200 APX

So, I need the "joe" for this machine.

Please, do answer me if you can help me. Since I don't use

I am not used to 'vi' at all, and don't like other editors that

Thanks in advance!

   Try using, requesting an advanced search,
   and use the search streing "joe near text near editor", or similar.
   Among other URL sites returned, you'll find:,

   And please consider using a better subject when posting, and please
   also consider using a more appropriate newsgroup -- OpenVMS users
   are not the best audience for UNIX text editor questions.  (With
   these two considerations, you'll tend to get answer(s) to your
   question(s) rather more quickly...)

1. Why does -one- user keep getting '6 failures since last login'?

    (pardon the repost: it's an update for clarity)
An Alpha running vms 1.5
Access via Multinet (telnet) or SET HOST 0

One typical user of our crowd doesn't get her Login Failures count zeroed
 when she successfully logs in.

Everybody else does.

I've looked at her SYSUAF record (seems normal, but shows -no- logins,
 ever.)  Except for the login failure count, all of her activities
 seem to work happily.  

If she (or i) enters the incorrect password, the Login Failure
 count *does* increment, and the new number shows both at login time,
  and in the SYSUAF record shown by Authorize.

Both her Interactive and Batch jobs appear in the accounting records,
 (ACCO/USER=white), but they do -not- show up in SYSUAF.DAT as either
   interactive or non-interactive activity.  

Logging on /nocommand has no effect on the problem.  Loginout.exe and
  SYSUAF.DAT both seem happy (Authorize has no problems with them,
   loginout's checksum matches other v1.5 alphas, etc.)

Any hints?

3. SYSTEM account password doesn't exist!!

4. howto prevent outsider to use my system as a relay

5. Doesn't an expired password prevent non-interactive logins?

6. ORCA C Compiler

7. ACCOUNTING/uic=(-[identifier] doesn't work (VMS 6.1)
