Abstract

There now is resident under socket 5 at UCSB a server program which supports a subset of the Remote Job Entry Protocol of RFC #407. This document includes enough information to allow the user to gain access to, and use the more basic function of UCSB's RJS. An RFC containing more detailed documentation will be forthcoming shortly.

Announcement of RJS at UCSB

There now is resident under socket 5 at UCSB a server program which

supports a subset of the Remote Job Entry Protocol of RFC #407. This

document includes enough information to allow the user to gain access

to, and use the more basic function of UCSB's RJS. An RFC containing

more detailed documentation will be forthcoming shortly.

The accounting parameters needed to login to RJS are a userid and a

password, each consisting of one to eight alphameric characters, the

first of which must be alphabetic. The userid is, at present,

completely arbitrary. The password is arbitrary the first time it is

used with a particular userid; in subsequent logins with that userid,

the same password must appear. Eventually, users will be assigned

userid-password pairs by UCSB Computer Center.

The only transmission mode supported currently is T (TELNET-like

carriage control); any other is treated as T. The other modes will soon

be added. The only disposition supported is the default transmit-and-

discard; any other is treated as transmit-and discard. The other

dispositions may or may not be added later.

For consistency and user convenience, the command 'INUSER' may be

substituted for 'INID' and 'OUTPATH' for 'OUT'. The following commands

are not as yet implemented: ABORT, ALTER, BACK, HOLD, OP RECOVER,

RESTART, AND SKIP. At least some of these will be implemented

relatively soon.

In order to accommodate users of TENEX FTP servers, the commands

'INACCT' and 'OUTACCT' have been added. These are used to set the

account number used in the file retrieval and storage operations,

respectively. The command 'ACCT' may be used to get both account

numbers. If one of these account numbers has not been specified, the

FTP 'ACCT' command will be omitted from the appropriate file operation.

These commands have the familiar syntax of followed by

or optionally '-', followed by and . The

is an account number consisting of one to six alphameric

characters.
