RE: Auto Signon



fixed

Chris,

Be very,very careful with the auto-signon parameter.  You could be opening a
security hole.  By the sounds of it you are doing something akin to
anonymous FTP.

If you allow auto-signon you are overriding any user profile checking
performed prior to your exit program being invoked.  Be sure you are
supplying user id, current library, initial program to call, and/or initial
menu.

Just to let everyone know I found a way to do this, and it is very simple to
have a 5250 session signon automatically w/ the device name.

All you have to do is use the exit point QIBM_QTG_DEVINIT

then move the devname to the user profile and set allow auto signon to 1

Why don't you just put a post-it with the username and password on the
kiosk?  Our users have found this to work quite well.  :)

Is there a way to have a 5250 session signon to the system automatically.  I
could pull the username and the password from the display station name.

My problem is that this is a Kiosk of sorts, and when a network problem
occurs the session is dropped back to the login screen,  I would like it the
then log itself back in. I have a friend that thinks he remembers something
about doing this but cant remember how. Possibly in the subsystem?



Chris
