Notes on the VM/370 Terminal

*** It is important to note that the user ID's are shared.
This means any files saved can be deleted or modified or
read by anyone else.  Security is lacking on this system
(it's just a short demo of VM/370) and any work you do
could be destroyed by the next visitor logon. Or someone
could wreck the system requiring that the DASD images be
 with the originals - frying your work.  If you want
to do more than get a taste of VM/370 I recommend a look at
the myVM370 package

About the 3279 web terminal. 
When this web page is first entered an automatic
logon on as CMSUSER will occur. Then a few lines will
display on the terminal.  When that has stopped press enter
and the mini-disk assignments in effect will display, the
screen will roll and the status word "MORE..." will appear
in the lower right corner.  Hit enter and status will change
to "HOLD" at which time you hit the "CLEAR" key which on
a PC has been mapped to the "HOME" key. Status should
change to "RUNNING".  You can now try some CMS
commands if you like.

Futher Explanation of the STATUS messages:
If you see in the lower right hand corner the message
"HOLDING" which indicates messages are waiting to be
displayed. To proceed hit the enter key, the message
will change to "MORE" at which point hit the CLEAR
key (HOME on a PC).

If you know what they
are, the PF1-12 keys are mapped to the F1-F12 keys of the PC
and PA1, PA2, and PA3 are the Ctrl-F1, F2, and F3 keys.  On
some PCs these keys may activate browser hot key functions
and produce undesireable results.

Check the CMS tab above for commands you can try.
