Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

Jorge,

You can see the VMS HELP to create the proxy account.
or
At the remote node name - rxxx (local node is lxxx)

$mcr authorize

uaf> add prx_acct/pass=../dire=../dev=.. etc as usual

uaf> create/proxy

uaf>add/proxy lxxx::your_username rxxx/default

uaf> you can add any other username also to have proxy access with the same cmds

now you can use the above copy commands without specifying the UN and PWD

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

Archunan - I must be extremely tired or just plain dumb today. I don't get the syntax from your previous posting. How do I setup the Proxy for a particular user to do remote copy without passing the string of username & password from Server_A to Server_B??

The normal syntax that I used to copy from Server_A to Server_B is:

COPY Test.OUT Server_A"Jorge PASSWORD"::DSA5:[USER.Jorge]*.* /log

Thank you!!

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

On Server_A

MCR AUTHORIZE ADD/PROXY thisnode::remotenuser JEORGE/DEF

where remoteuser is the username on this node.

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

Jorge,

Assume the account jorge is in Server_A

At Server_B:
Create a proxy account named pr_jorge. A proxy login enables a user logged in at a remote node (Server_A) to be logged in automatically to a specific account (pr_jorge) at the local node (Server_B), without having to supply any access control information.

$mcr authorize !-- make sure you don't create new uaf file

uaf> add pr_jorge/pass=xxxx/device=dka100/dire=[pr_jorge].. etc as usual

uaf> create/proxy !---- give this command if you don't have the proxy database, this will create netproxy.dat (decnet phase IV) or net$proxy.dat (for decnet phase V)

uaf>add/proxy Server_A::jorge pr_jorge/default

This allows the account jorge on server_A proxy access to account pr_jorge, all his privileges and allows temporarily act as pr_jorge when he (jorge) access Server_B.

you said, you want to copy from Srver_A to Server_B, but command you've given copies to Server_A. OK, we will do the same, coping test.out from Server_B to server_A

From Server_A/jorge account, give this command
$copy Server_B::test.out test.out

$copy server_B::[not_login_dir]test.out test.out

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

Archunan,

Do I still need to create an acocount on Node B if I already have an account called 'Jorge' on node A and on Node B?

So, I would only need to do this, right?

On Node A:
add/proxy Server_A::jorge jorge/default

Node B:
add/proxy Server_A::jorge jorge/default

Please let me know.

Thanks for your help.

Jorge

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

On Node A:
add/proxy Server_B::jorge jorge/default

to allow communications both ways.
