Since QCTL is always active before QINTER, you'll never end up in QCTL by default, unless your QINTER subsystem description contains device name entries that preclude running there. However, you can TFRCTL into QCTL. I used to work at a place where we did that every afternoon for exactly the same reasons that you refer to. I think this behavior is a little capricious though, in that it may depend on how you are attached (we used an ASCII controller and WYSE50 emulation). I've tried this trick using SDLC connections, and it has not worked. It may even be release sensitive. One thing you can do however, which is what we do at my present employer, is to use another subsystem (we use QPGMR), and add specific device name entries to this subsystem only. We always bring up QPGMR after QINTER, and generally (but not always), the device description ends up being allocated by it. In any case, if QPGMR is active and QINTER is not, the dial-in device will attach there. hth Pete Pete Hall email@example.com http://www.inwave.com/~peteh/ +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to "MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com". | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
