I am pretty sure that you can take the system to a restricted 
state from ANY terminal.  It does not have to be Port 0 address 
0 of the first WSC.  But, the job MUST be in the controling 
subsystem.  And normally, the device that defaults to the 
controling subsystem is the console.

But, you can transfer an interactive job out of QINTER and into 
the controling subsysem by a) ending any sysrqs jobs, b) ending 
any group jobs (attention key stuff) you have active, and then 
c) doing a TFRJOB JOBQ(QCTL).

Now you can take the system to a restricted state.

However, either the put it in a program and run from the console 
as I meantion below or the go backup and use a "start" time 
method is probably a much safer method of doing what is desired.

If the primary WSC on a system is ASCII the port 0 port is the 
console and
can be controlled via a modem.
