0= or task= DECnet task-to-task syntax?

» close window

The Question is:

What is the filename, "0=TELSER" ?
We have this line of code which works but I don't know how.
open/read/write net 'node'::"0=TELSER"
write/sym net cmd
Somehow this open up a "file" on another node to receive the command which is
 then written to it.  Can you tell me more about 0=TELSER?

The Answer is :

  DECnet object zero is also known as the task object, and it can
  be specified as "0=server" or as "task=server".
  Please see topic (159) for an example of using the DCL DECnet
  task-to-task capabilities, and please see topic (1910) for
  other details of DECnet task-to-task.
  You will want to look for a TELSER server running on the target
  (remote) host, a TELSER in the DECnet object database, or a TELSER.COM
  in the default directory on the target host.
