rlogin [-8dE] [-e char] [-l username] 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.
|This utility needs to have the setuid (“set user ID”) bit set in its permissions. If you use mkefs, mketfs, or mkifs on a Windows host to include this utility in an image, use the perms attribute to specify its permissions explicitly, and the uid and gid attributes to set the ownership correctly.|
The rlogin utility requires the libsocket.so shared library.
