The system administrator can configure each 7318 port with up to six static sessions. A static session is when an administrator predefines commands to run automatically when a terminal becomes active on the specified port (that is, when the terminal is connected and turned on). As a result, the administrator can configure the system for less technically sophisticated users and restrict their access to other facilities of the 7318 or other hosts computers on the local area network.
For example, the system administrator can configure the system so that all ports automatically initiate a tn3270 session with a mainframe whenever a user turns on an attached terminal. This provides both ease of use for the nontechnical terminal user as well as increased security. The terminal user cannot circumvent this automatic login process if the administrator has configured the port for the attached terminal in this way.
The following example specifies a [ Session ] section in which there are three [ SessionNN ] subsections, each specifying a command shell, dynamic, and rlogin session, respectively:
[Session] nsessions = 03 [Session00] device = LDTCOM port = 0 session = 0 application = command [Session01] device = LDTCOM port = 0 session = 1 application = dynamic [Session02] device = LDTCOM port = 0 session = 2 application = rlogin bach
application=rlogin HostName application=tn3270 HostNameEach port has a minimum of one session, which must be defined as a command session unless all sessions are reserved . For more information, see " [Session] Section " .
