Virtual terminals and tcpip proxy access

When i login an account using telnet, then my device is a vta-device (virtual terminal).

When i login the same account using RLOGIN and a TCPIP-proxy (so no password prompt) then my device is a TNA-device

Logical TCPIP$RLOGIN_VTA is set to "TRUE"

So, i don't get a VTA-device when logging in using RLOGIN combined with a tcpip-proxy. Any ideas?

Re: Virtual terminals and tcpip proxy access

hi,

if TCPIP$TELNET_VTA is set you will come in as a VTA device FOR TELNET if not then you will be a TNA device. if TCPIP$RLOGIN_VTA is set (required for proxy login) you come in as TNA device for RLOGIN if not then as a VTA device.

I added def/sys/exec tcpip$rlogin_vta "TRUE"
to my sylogicals, rebooted the node and did a rlogin to the node itself. TNA. To another node. TNA.

Version 5.3 eco 2.

We have tcpip 5.4 eco 7

Without tcpip-proxy
===================
RLOGIN localhost : terminaldevice is VTA


With tcpip-proxy
================
RLOGIN localhost/user=
terminaldevice is TNA

For what reason i don't get a VTA-device when i use a tcpip-proxy?

Re: Virtual terminals and tcpip proxy access

Ben,

see the TCPIP service manual

http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/732final/6526/6526pro_037.html

Para 17.3

"Users with communication proxies cannot use virtual terminals. Therefore, if the logical name TCPIP$RLOGIN_VTA is set, users logging in by proxies will observe that the terminal device they are assigned is displayed as TNAnnn rather than VTAnnn."

Re: Virtual terminals and tcpip proxy access

I did a rlogin to the node itself with a different username (SYSTEM) and no proxy. TNA.
