In reality only those with UCX emulation. SAMBA actually just uses the
standard socket library, and on OpenVMS the standard socket library uses
the equivalent of dlsymbol() pull in the actual TCP/IP routines.

While it would require a formal test to insure compliance, Multinet and
TCPWARE provide the HP/Compaq TCPIP API and try to maintain binary
The author of the 2.2.4 port has not volunteered much information on
their port to the samba-vms mailing list other than an FTP location.
I have not had a chance to look it over the source.
