Once you get an account, you can log onto a VMS node through the terminal server. The terminal server requires a logon, which is separate from the host logon. For the MICOM server this is:
Princeton Plasma Physics Lab. Authorized use only. Username: your_name Password:XXXXX PPPL connection successful. Pause 4 sec., press return.There are two supported protocols: LAT and LAT is more efficient from a PPL office; TELNET. TELNET must be used from a remote host or to log onto non-VMS systems. For a LAT connection:
local> c birch (or rax, willow, etc.)For a TELNET connection:
local> telnet birch (or rax, willow, etc.) or local> telnet birch.pppl.gov (from a remote site)In all cases, to log in:
You need certain privileges
if you want to access the on-line TFTR data. These can be set up
when your account is opened if you know what privileges you need or
they can be added later. The most commonly needed privileges are:
TFTR_RESULTS_OWNER Raw and Results
SNAP_USER_OWNER SNAP Results
TRANSPDATA TRANSP Results
$ SHOW PROCESS/PRIVNote that $ is the default VMS command prompt. You do not type the $ when entering commands. If you are missing any needed privileges, contact your sponsor.
When you log on to the cluster, a procedure file named LOGIN.COM, which resides in your login directory is executed. If you are a new user, when you first log on, do:
$ COPY USR:[COM]LOGIN.COM *to get the prototypical TFTR login file. Further sections in this chapter describe other commands you might want to put into your login file.
