NETRJT: Remote Job Service Protocol for TIPS
Alternative Format: Original Text Document
In the longer term, we believe that the NETRJT protocol described here should be considered as the first draft of a Network standard for remote job entry via TIP's. In its present form, NETRJT owes much to the ideas and comments of Alex McKenzie (BBN), Jon Postel (NMC), Jim White (UCSB), and Steve Wolfe (CCN). B. NETRJT COMMANDS --------------- NETRJT provides the following commands over the remote operator connection, in addition to the NETRJS operator commands (see Appendix D of RFC #189). The symbol "#" denotes one or more spaces. We will use the IBM meta-language to describe the command syntax. The literal text shown here in upper case may, in fact, be entered in either upper or lower case. 1. Opening a Stream ---------------- / \ | PR [INTER] | _ _ | | | | O [PEN] # | (jobname) | [ =socket-number[ /host-name ]] | | | | | R [EADER] | | (*) | \ / |_ _| If the specified device does not already have an open connection, the NETRJT server will request connection to the specified socket. The optional "(jobname)" para- meter is used to specify a particular job by name; for more information on the semantics of this parameter, see the discussion of input and output operations below. The "/host-name" parameter, to be implemented later, is intended to allow the file to be at a host different from both user and server hosts. We include it here only to suggest a syntax. The socket number may have a one-letter suffix D, H, or O to mean decimal, hex, or octal. Octal is the default, so the O suffix may be omitted. If BBN establishes standardized TIP sockets for specific unit record devices, the socket number parameter could be omitted when the standard socket number is intended.
