FAL - Help file for FAL %1(5) Page 1 The TOPS-10 File Access Listener (FAL) provides network-level remote file access capabilities as specified in the Data Access Protocol (DAP). FAL runs as a user-mode system program, and requires [OPR] or equivilent privileges. A separate FAL job must be run for each concurrent remote file access stream. FAL supports both ANF and DECNET networks, but only one at a time as selected by the operator at FAL startup time. FAL depends on the ACTDAE program to validate the USERID and associated password (and account string if required), so you must be running ACTDAE for network file accesses to work - even if USAGE accounting is disabled! SYS:USERS.TXT is an optional file which contains user "names" and their corresponding "ppns". This allows remote file access requests to specify a user "name" in lieu of a ppn. The format of USERS.TXT is as defined by the MS program, and consists of ASCII lines of text specifying the "ppn" and "name" strings, as in: DSKB:[1,2],Operator DSKB:[1,4],System DSKQ:[17,17],JRTroll FAL will ignore any structure specification supplied in USERS.TXT. FAL is invoked by running the NFT program and issuing the "FAL" command to NFT. The FAL command instructs NFT to enter FAL command mode. Commands to FAL are: NETPPN ppn Set the default network access ppn to "ppn". The NETPPN command is used to define the default ("free") ppn which FAL will use as the "on behalf of" account for processing remote file access requests. If the incoming request does not specify a USERID then NETPPN will be used in its place. If "ppn" is blank or the NETPPN command is not issued then an incoming file access request which does not have a USERID will be rejected. REJECT rjs Reject any file access request from "rjs". The REJECT command is used to specify one or more nodes and/or users (ppns) which will unconditionally NOT be allowed remote file access. The "rjs" specification is in the form of a file-spec-list of which only the node and directory specifications have any semantic meaning (the file name etc. are ignored). If only a node name is specified then all requests from that node will be rejected; if only a ppn is specified then that ppn will be rejected from all nodes; if both a node and ppn are specified then only that ppn from that node will be rejected. START ntyp Start the FAL process for network type "ntyp". FAL - Help file for FAL %1(5) Page 2 The START command tells FAL to start up and initialize for running the FAL process. The "ntyp" is optional, and is used to select whether to become an ANF FAL or a DECNET FAL; "ntyp" must be one of "ANF" or "DECNET". If no "ntyp" is specified, then "DECNET" is assumed. Once a START command has been successfully issued FAL initializes and will no longer accept any further commands. NIP Return to NFT command mode, abort FAL command mode. The NIP command is used to abort from FAL command mode and return to NFT command mode. .KJOB .
