I have a site that are moving (slowly) from serial to IP
They all user the same username to login (accounting software - cobol - not my choice).
The software uses a script to assign a terminal number based on the line eg tty1a1 = terminal 1 ptty2 = terminal 7 etc etc.
Now they are moving to ip the user will get a random ptty session and the terminal number changes. the stupid accounting program uses terminal numbers to identify such things as print jobs.
Can you make a user on a fixed ip address get a specifc ptty session ? eg 22.214.171.124 get ptty0 and or ptty1 etc etc
