rlogin [-8dE] [-e char] [-l username] host
- Allow an eight-bit input data path at all times. Without this option, parity bits are stripped whenever the remote side's stop and start characters are ^S and ^Q.
- Turn on socket debugging on the TCP sockets used for communication with the remote host. See setsockopt().
- Stop any character from being recognized as an escape character. When used with -8, this provides a completely transparent connection.
- -e char
- Use the specified character as the escape character (default is ~). You can specify this as a literal character or as an octal value in the form \nnn.
- -l username
- Log in with this user ID instead of the current one.
- The official name, an alias, or the Internet address of a remote host.
The rlogin utility starts a terminal session on the specified remote host. To validate the login ID, rlogin uses the standard Berkeley rhosts authorization mechanism.
Once you're connected, typing:
disconnects you from the remote host. By default, the tilde (~) character is the escape character.
All echoing takes place at the remote site, so that (except for delays) the rlogin is transparent. Flow control via ^S and ^Q and flushing of input and output on interrupts are handled properly.
The rlogin utility requires the libsocket.so shared library.
- Determines the user's terminal type.
