You are right it's wrong architecture. I didn't think there were any differences between a HP D370 and D380, but it's different processors D380 is supporting 32/64 bits. Now I have downloaded from sudo.ws and will try that.

That sounds like the wrong binary architecture. In that case the
"magic number" of the file fails and the shell tries to run it like a

What does "file" say on it? What is the output of these commands? I
am guessing (as Todd seemed to be) that there is an architecture

uname -a

As far as I know HP-UX 11.11 is only on PA-RISC. The first HP-UX
supporting IA64 is HP-UX 11.22 and later. So 11.11 would imply a
parisc machine. HP-UX 11.23 is the current release for ia64. HP-UX
11.23 has only recently been released for the HP s800 machines
(notably not yet supporting the HP s700 machines).
