NT usage of generic addresses is the DEFAULT,

There are ways to have NT assign addresses that are always the same for some 
device or way into the 400.  I am not an NT person.  Our NT person found out 
on a 400 forum how to do this - I do not know the technique he used or which 
forum ... I had suggested a bunch that he might want to use & he also found 
some others on his own.

When I look at DSPLOG on NT sessions connecting to our 400, they come with a 
unique IP address, the device session name, the end user sign on, and QUSER 
is also present.

Our devices are identified by NT to 400 as 3 initials of end user name, then 
digits of session # on the device run by person with those initials,

We had to do this because it was the expedient way to talk to BPCS which uses 
sign-on session id for work areas of applications ... users needed to be able 
to get into the same work area in concurrent sessions & not be conflicting 
with other users whose QPDAV00 was the same prefix with last unique digits 
stripped off because of the application characters.
