There's too many variables to be able to answer your question. Are the terminals assigned by a terminal manager or hard-wired? Are you talking about a CICS session? TSO session? ROSCOE session? Unix System Services session? some other session? What are you calling a terminal -- a particular device sitting on a particular desk, or a particular TCP/IP address, a particular PC running a particular emulator, or something else?

True, but the control is usually a VTAM ID. Since most people access our systems using TCP/IP these days, the VTAM ID changes even for a constant terminal, so it's pretty useless.

well... the situation is not that simple
usually for generic/open terminals is ok to have everything dynamic ( IP,NETNAME,TERMIDNT)
and have everything based on the logon USERID

there are situations where it is advisable to go the other way ...
static IP, static NETNAME assigned ( tcp parms )to a fixed IP

permissions based on the NETNAME
( user allowed to logon to an application only from a specific terminal , HR is typical )

so situations might vary according to different security and privacy concerns
