Remote access to batch/print queues?

» close window

The Question is:

I need to know what layered products I need, to create an API for Wndows 2000
 that will submit a batch job on Openvms and return the results to a specified
 VMS directory.

The Answer is :

  You could configure the remote system for remote file access from the
  OpenVMS system (FTP or HTTP), and configure a DCL CGI script that pulls
  over and then submits the specified file.  (The CGI script or a server
  periodically scanning the batch queues or similar would have to handle
  the notification of batch job completion.)
  Alternatively, the typical OpenVMS interfaces likely of use here are
  COM/DCOM and/or direct IP sockets and/or $qiow calls to the IP device
  driver (for IP network communications), and the $sndjbc and $getqui
  system service calls.  These calls would probably be in the context
  of a server or a task that would be invoked from a remote client.
  Or you could use an X Windows Server on the remote system, and simply
  use OpenVMS directly.
