Login: ALF and LAT ports

The Question is:

Why can't the ALF (autologin facility) in SYSMAN use
a LAT terminal as an autologin terminal? e.g. A fixed

The Answer is:

              -< Use SERVER/PORT syntax instead of terminal name >-

How can I set up a LAT port for use with the Auto Login Facility


ALF maintenance is performed using the SYSMAN Utility.  A command
similar to the following can be used to add a port to the ALF file:

     SYSMAN> ALF ADD /PORT "MN34C3/LC-1-2" username
                                ^     ^
                                |     |
                              server port
                              name   name

IMPORTANT:  The port specification must be in uppercase letters since
            the Auto Login Facility is case sensitive.

NOTE:  This also works for DECnet SET HOST by using a command similar
       to the following:

       SYSMAN> ALF ADD "::"/PORT
