Those looking for MPE/iX ports of Open Source software that were formerly hosted at HP’s “Jazz” and other sites will appreciate which promotes itself as “being your one-stop shop for all available Open Source packages ported to the platform, lots of freeware programs and scripting, and loads of tools and information to keep your 3000 system alive and thriving!”. Currently the site offers an updated all-in-one package of the components required to implement the sftp Secure File Transfer Protocol on MPE/iX 6.5 or later. This package includes Perl, the Gnu Compiler Collection (GCC), as well as GNU tools, SSL, SSH, and required dependencies.
