I managed to get a connection between Windows and a SIMHed VMS
running on it by using the TAP-Win32 adapter from OpenVPN[1]
as XQB in SIMH (XQA being connected to the real NIC). To install
it, get the package, and choose to install nothing but the adapter.

With this setup, I even got a DECwindows login (through eXceed)
on my laptop - felt like having a VAXbook ;-)
