Jnet and ANJE channels are used to link PMDF to either
ANJE.1 Both of these
software packages implement NJE compliant networking under OpenVMS. NJE
networking is used to link OpenVMS systems to the national BITNET
network as well as its sister networks internationally. The
documentation presented here is intentionally biased towards sites on
BITNET; sites on NJE networks disjoint from
BITNET will have to ignore all the BITNET-specific
information contained in this chapter and devise their own procedures
for configuring their networks.
ANJE channels use a single
unidirectional master program and a single unidirectional slave
program. The master program can only send while the slave program can
only receive. There is also a third channel program for use with
ANJE; this channel is used to
implement mailer processing and is not itself directly attached to
slave program runs either as
Mail Delivery (LMD) agent or as the
ANJE delivery daemon
and is only associated with one channel (the "local NJE"
channel). The master program is invoked by
ANJE channels are generated by the
automatic configuration generator if any are needed.
PMDF is compatible with versions 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7 of
