Automating Remote (Network) Login?

» close window

The Question is:

How do I automate a vms login?
For example. I have two or three alpha systems and would like to be able to
 automate a login from one machine to another to perform certain tasks.
I would file to create a command file that will telnet to a specific ip address
 and then send the username and password so tht I'm then at a dcl prompt.
A simple example would be appreciated!

The Answer is :

  Please see existing examples of DECnet task-to-task communications
  here in Ask The Wizard (ATW) and please see related information in
  the OpenVMS FAQ.  (Some of the ATW topics of interest include (5409),
  (159), (798), (1910), and various others.)  Use of rexec and rsh
  would be the IP analog of this.
  There is deliberately no particular means to automate SET HOST or
  SET HOST/TELNET and to pass over the username and password, whether
  for DECnet or for IP/telnet connections.
