Title: ILN RJE user's guide for PDP-11/RSX-11M hosts

Abstract

The Intra-Laboratory Network (ILN) is a general-purpose computer communications network located at Argonne National Laboratory. This network provides communications between computers connected to the network. In addition to its general-purpose capability, the ILN also provides a remote job entry (RJE) system that allows users to move files from the user's computer system to ANL's Central Computing Facility (CCF), move files from the CCF to the user's computer system, and check on the status of CCF jobs, cancel jobs, etc. This document describes the use of the ILN RJF system for users who have DEC PDP-11 computer systems running the RSX-11M operating system. The ILN RJE system consists of three parts. Closest to the user is the ILN RJE utility program that runs on the user's host. Between the host and the CCF is the ILN which contains, in addition to the network control, an ILN RJE facility that supports the utility program and interfaces to the CCF. The third part is the CCF, which is accessed via the CCF front-end Varian V73 communications processors. The procedures for running the ILN RJE utility program are described first. Next, the commands that can be used to submit and retrieve jobs, check onmore » job status, etc., are discussed. Each command description includes the command syntax, a brief description of the function, and one or more examples. Then several techniques for transferring files between a host and either CCF or another host are outlined. Appendixes summarize the ILN RJE system commands, the possible error messages, and the ASCII/EBCDIC conversion table that is used in the ILN.« less
