Command tcl.logon Verb: Access/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP
Category TCL (746)
Description logs on a port, other than the one currently being used, onto a specific account.

The process prompts with the following:

line,user-id,user-password,md,md-password:

"line" is the port.number to log on.

"user-id" is the user-id (must be in "dm,users,").

"user-password" is the user-password (if defined).

"md" is the account name to log on to.

"md-password" is the account password (if defined).

The port can NOT already be logged on.

This command is also useful for invoking "background" tasks on another port. Background or "phantom" tasks may also be invoked using the phantom processor (see the "z" commands).
Syntax logon {(p)}
line,user-id,user-password,md,md-password:
Options p Starts process as a "phantom" line. Note that this does not have the same meaning as what is often considered a "phantom", where the process spawns a new process workspace. Rather, this option requires an existing unused port, just like any other port being used for a remote logon. In this context, "phantom" means that it is treated like a Spooler process. This means that the logon sequence is suppressed, which turns off the display of the time and date logged on, the "welcome" message" and the automatic update of the ACC file. (R83)
Example
logon<return>
line,user-id,user-password,md,md-password:0,dm,,dm

This logs line 0 (zero) on to the user-id "dm" with no user password, 
then on to the account "dm" which also has no password.
