        Actually, I am shutting down QINTER for the purpose of not letting any
users other than myself gain access to the system.  In the past I had
users processing during EOD, causing locks on files, holding up my EOD
jobs.  So, creating a generic QPADEV* workstation entry wont work.  Nice
try though.
