Enabling telnet/rlogin virtual terminals?

» close window

The Question is:

 
I'm running TCP/IP v5.0. This VAX receives incoming telnet sessions from the internet, so I usually have lots of dead connections hanging that I have to terminate. I attempted to turn on virtual terminal for telnet to solve the problem, and got the follow
ing:
 
TCPIP> SET COMMUNICATION/REMOTE_TER=virtual
%TCPIP-I-INETERROR, internet interface error
-TCPIP-I-NOMORE, parameter or qualifier REMOTE_TERMINAL.VIRTUAL_TERMINALS no longer supported; see the documentation for valid options and re-enter command
 
So I zipped right over to http://www.openvms.digital.com:8000/index.html and tried to look up the "proper method". Natually, I couldn't find it. I REQUIRE this feature. How do I get it?
 
 


The Answer is :

 
    Enabling virtual terminals for IP is now done with logical names.
 
    The updated procedure is as follows (OpenVMS/Alpha assumed):
 
    1) Enable the DISCONNECT bit in the SYSGEN parameter TTY_DEFCHAR2
    2) Load the VTA driver using SYSMAN:
 
    SYSMAN> IO CONNECT VTA0/NOADAPTER -
    	/DRIVER=SYS$LOADABLE_IMAGES:SYS$TTDRIVER.EXE
 
    3) Define TCPIP logical names to enable virtual terminals for TELNET
    	and/or RLOGIN terminals:
 
    $DEFINE/SYSTEM/EXEC TCPIP$TELNET_VTA "TRUE"
    $DEFINE/SYSTEM/EXEC TCPIP$RLOGIN_VTA "TRUE"
 
 
    This change is documented in the TCPIP V5.0 Release Notes, Section 1.25
    "TELNET Virtual Terminals"	See SYS$HELP:TCPIP050A.RELEASE_NOTES
