ACCEPT



ACCEPT

     Permits a designated device to accept jobs/sessions and/or
     data (CM).

SYNTAX

     ACCEPT [JOBS],ldev
            [DATA]


PARAMETERS

JOBS                The designated device recognizes the Job and
                    HELLO commands.  The device must be interactive
                    to support sessions.

DATA                The designated device will recognize the DATA
                    command.  ACCEPT recognizes the DATA parameter,
                    but data accepting devices are not supported.

ldev                The logical device number of the device for which
                    the JOB, HELLO, and/or DATA commands are being
                    enabled.

NOTE

If you omit both the JOBS and the DATA parameters, then both the JOB
and HELLO commands, and the DATA command are allowed.


OPERATION

     The operator or system supervisor uses this command to
     designate which devices may be used to initiate jobs or
     sessions and/or data.  When a device is configured as an
     "accepting" device, MPE/iX will automatically scan the first
     input record for a valid JOB, HELLO, or DATA command.
     This feature, called auto-recognition, allows users to
     access the device without specifically requesting use of the
     device with a message to the system console.

     If the JOBS parameter is explicitly requested, the ACCEPT
     command will not be executed unless the device has been
     configured with a default output device.

     This command may be issued from a session, job, program, or in
     BREAK. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this command.  It is
     executable only from the console unless distributed to users
     with the ALLOW command.
