rlogin — remote
Rlogin starts a terminal session on a
remote host host.
Rlogin first attempts to use the Kerberos
authorization mechanism, described below. If the remote host does not
supporting Kerberos the standard Berkeley rhosts
authorization mechanism is used. The options are as follows:
-8option allows an eight-bit input data path at all times; otherwise parity bits are stripped except when the remote side's stop and start characters are other than ^S/^Q .
-ioption specifies the local user name to use for authentication with the remote
rlogindserver. This overrides the default which is the name of the user invoking
-loption specifies the name of the remote user to login as. This overrides the default which is the name of the user invoking
-Eoption stops any character from being recognized as an escape character. When used with the
-8option, this provides a completely transparent connection.
-Koption turns off all Kerberos authentication. This option has no effect since Kerberos authentication is not available in this version.
-Loption allows the rlogin session to be run in ``litout'' (see tty(4)) mode.
-doption turns on socket debugging (see setsockopt(2)) on the TCP sockets used for communication with the remote host.
-eoption allows user specification of the escape character, which is ``~'' by default. This specification may be as a literal character, or as an octal value in the form \nnn.
-poption specifies the port to connect to. This overrides the default which is
A line of the form ``<escape char>.'' disconnects from the
remote host. Similarly, the line ``<escape char>^Z'' will suspend the
rlogin session, and ``<escape
char><delayed-suspend char>'' suspends the send portion of the
rlogin, but allows output from the remote system. By default, the tilde
(``~'') character is the escape character, and normally control-Y (``^Y'')
is the delayed-suspend character.
All echoing takes place at the remote site, so that (except for
rlogin is transparent. Flow control via
^S/^Q and flushing of input and output on interrupts are handled
