Thanks, found the services file and a suitable alias+port. Both spawner and
SAS/Share-server on my PC now works.
One idea is to test whether using the CPU on a local PC instead of the CPU
on the MVS is an option, when data and source-code is on the MVS, that is
when the need for CPU is more important than I/O. The SAS-program on the MVS
is then rsubmitted to the PC etc.
Good to hear from you, by the way.
