VSPO is a program that runs under GCS on the VTAM virtual machine (or
any other machine in the group). It acts as a Secondary Program
Operator, allowing users of other virtual machines to pass commands to
VTAM via SMSG and receive responses back via MSGNOH. During
initialization, VSPO reads a list of authorized users from an ordinary
CMS file. Any user on the list can issue a VTAM VARY, DISPLAY, or MODIFY
command by entering:
SMSG VTAM cmd
where 'cmd' is the VTAM command. The list of authorized users can be
updated without a regen of VSPO, and without bringing down VTAM.
VSPO can handle concurrent requests, delivering VTAM's response to each
one to just the user who issued it.
