It may well be a compiler problem, not an OS problem per se.  This
particular compiler (DEC C 5.2) is pretty old.

Define "VMS"; there are several TCP/IP stacks, and this test has not
worked yet on Multinet as far as I know.  I've been meaning to track
it down, but . . . .

I'm about to try a build with a later compiler and the
Compaq-supplied TCIP/IP stack.  I expect it to be less interesting.
