Re: Need set host/mop syntax for MAC address

From the manual

$ set host/mop -
_$ /circuit = circuit-name - (1)
_$ /address = lan-address - (2)
_$ /verification = octet-string - (3)
_$ /disconnect = disconnect-character -
_$ /break = break-character

1. Specifies the name of the MOP circuit over which the target system can be reached.
2. Specifies the LAN hardware address associated with this client.
3. Specifies the verification string. The value is an octet string of up to 16 hexadecimal digits. Enter the value as "%X" followed by an even number of digits. For more information about specifying a verification string, see Section 10.2.2.1. The default is %X0000000000000000.

Re: Need set host/mop syntax for MAC address

Hi
If using DECnet Phase V, then to make permanent change try using
$net$configure
option 8 - Configure MOP Client database
this will edit the file SYS$MANAGER:NET$MOP_CLIENT_STARTUP.NCL;

So you can just $set host/mop
without the need to remember the MAC address, etc.. all the time

Content of file would look something like
CREATE MOP CLIENT SERV01
SET MOP CLIENT SERV01 CIRCUIT = CSMACD-0 -
,ADDRESSES = {08-00-2B-B1-9B-00} -
,PHASE IV HOST ADDRESS = 2.1 -
,PHASE IV CLIENT NAME = SERV01 -
,DUMP FILE = {SYS$SYSROOT:SERV01.DMP}

Re: Need set host/mop syntax for MAC address

SET HOST /MOP /DISCON=D /CIRCUIT=CSMACD-0
/ADDRESS=mac_address
/DISCON=D means use Control and D to disconnect
CIRCUIT=CSMACD-0 is the circuit we use.
Hopefully this will help.
Yours Terry.
