User Interface for TSM?

» close window

The Question is:

Hi, I would like to create an interactive screen (I would use VAX-Pascal or
 even a DCL script) to allow limited access to TSM.  The only access I want for
 a non-administrator, with very limited knowledge of OpenVMS, to have is to log
 a port.  Is there a w
ay this can be done?

The Answer is :

  The direct solution is not easily -- effectively, you want to replace
  TSM with your own application interface, which means you would implement
  your own MOP communications with the particular terminal server.  This
  is certainly possible, of course -- the DECnet MOP documentation is
  referenced in the OpenVMS FAQ, and you will likely end up using a network
  monitor to determine the connection and traffic necessary to perform the
  required command(s).
  Probably easier would be to configure the terminal server to automatically
  log out the connection upon disconnection from the host.
