||On non-networked Office servers, a user
needs to be set to Autologin on node FF in order to activate the Autologon
facility. Disabling and then re-enabling this facility will fail with
Usercon versions 3.00 and earlier - this version number appears at the top
right hand corner of the Usercon screen.. We have version 3.01
available on request, which corrects the problem.
||The very extensive PRNMGR commands in
REAL/32 Office can cope with almost any requirement, but beware if there
are no printers on a server. In such a situation, the standard "Printmap"
command can lead to a printer being assigned as a NUL device, which, when
combined with a PRNMGR SELECT command designed to send output to a printer
on another server, can result in the output being lost. Good practice is
to avoid mixing PRINTMAP and PRNMGR commands when setting up and
maintaining printers. Printers with DESPOOL loaded need PRNMGR commands,
and printers that are printing direct to a port need PRINTMAP and PRINTER
||Synchronising clock times around a REAL/32 network can be useful where
time-critical operations are carried out on multiple servers, for example
in a courier company. IMS has produced Getclock.exe to do this on REAL/32
Office and IMS Dos Professional; simply install this utility in a batch
file on each server (except the master) and the servers will stay
synchronised regardless of slight differences in their own timekeeping
are not authorised for remote access"
||This is seen by an IMSterm IPX user if the Usercon field
"Access via modem" is set to "No". Please set this
field to "Yes" in usercon. This is not a bug; the intention in
implementing this was to ensure that system managers were aware that an
authorised person with a valid login and password could access the system
from a remote network station, even over a Wide Area Network, rather than
simply from locally. This security risk may need to be defended against,
particularly (for example) by deleting a user as soon as they leave
|Linemon in REAL/32
||REAL/32 will write a line into Autoexec.bat to start
linemon in a phantom session. When installing Office, please remember to
delete that instruction, and use the normal Usercon settings instead.
|RegenDP and Killfm.exe
||Should Dospro.sys and/or Dospro.idx become corrupt, then
users and their permissions may be lost or altered. Regendp is sent out with every operating system to correct this problem by creating two new
files, Dpdata.new and Dpindx.new respectively. In order to copy these new
files to the original filenames, the original files need to be closed.
This is not normally possible with users live on the system, and of course
the person doing the job is also a live user! The way around this is to
use the Killfm
utility supplied on the support disk of from our ftp site. Enter Killfm
followed by the main server node number, and the file manager will closed
down until the next request for it's services. Quickly copy DPdata.new to
Dospro.sys and DPindx.new to Dospro.idx and the users need not have their
work disturbed - they can carry on as normal.
|"DOS Gate disabled"
||Running an application from the menu produces the error
"DOS Gate disabled". This message is a result of the REAL/32
office security features which stops a program loading the command prompt
or another application which may allow unauthorised access . If you wish
to allow you program to chain another program use the _option chain option
in front of the application name within the menu script.
