I have ported them to work on VMS running Network Research's FUSION
TCP/IP package.  It was an easy port because the support a BSD
style interface.  I have ported  some RPC based services from Suns
with little difficulty to VMS, problems were mostly with VMS C.

I know of someone who partially ported it to
the VMS Excelan TCP/IP but with considerable difficulty and it didn't
work well because Excelan only provides a VMS QIO interface that is
based on 4.1BSD networking.
