RLOGIN(1C)																RLOGIN(1C)

NAME
rlogin - remote login SYNOPSIS
rlogin rhost [ -ec ] [ -8 ] [ -L ] [ -l username ] rhost [ -ec ] [ -8 ] [ -L ] [ -l username ] DESCRIPTION
Rlogin connects your terminal on the current local host system lhost to the remote host system rhost. Each host has a file /etc/hosts.equiv which contains a list of rhost's with which it shares account names. (The host names must be the standard names as described in rsh(1C).) When you rlogin as the same user on an equivalent host, you don't need to give a password. Each user may also have a private equivalence list in a file .rhosts in his login directory. Each line in this file should contain an rhost and a username separated by a space, giving additional cases where logins without passwords are to be permitted. If the originating user is not equivalent to the remote user, then a login and password will be prompted for on the remote machine as in login(1). To avoid some security problems, the .rhosts file must be owned by either the remote user or root. The remote terminal type is the same as your local terminal type (as given in your environment TERM variable). The terminal or window size is also copied to the remote system if the server supports the option, and changes in size are reflected as well. 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 optional argument -8 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. The argument -L allows the rlogin session to be run in litout mode. A line of the form ``~.'' disconnects from the remote host, where ``~'' is the escape character. Similarly, the line ``~^Z'' (where ^Z, control-Z, is the suspend character) will suspend the rlogin session. Substitution of the delayed-suspend character (normally ^Y) for the suspend character suspends the send portion of the rlogin, but allows output from the remote system. A different escape character may be specified by the -e option. There is no space separating this option flag and the argument character. SEE ALSO

NAME
rlogin -- remote login SYNOPSIS
rlogin [-8EKLd] [-e char] [-i identity] [-l username] [-p port] host DESCRIPTION
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: -8 The -8 option 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 . -i The -i option specifies the local user name to use for authentication with the remote rlogind server. This overrides the default which is the name of the user invoking rlogin. -l The -l option specifies the name of the remote user to login as. This overrides the default which is the name of the user invoking rlogin. -E The -E option stops any character from being recognized as an escape character. When used with the -8 option, this provides a com- pletely transparent connection. -K The -K option turns off all Kerberos authentication. This option has no effect since Kerberos authentication is not available in this version. -L The -L option allows the rlogin session to be run in ``litout'' (see tty(4)) mode. -d The -d option turns on socket debugging (see setsockopt(2)) on the TCP sockets used for communication with the remote host. -e The -e option 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 nn. -p The -p option specifies the port to connect to. This overrides the default which is login. A line of the form ``<escape char>.'' disconnects from the remote host. Similarly, the line ``<escape char>^Z'' will suspend the rlogin ses- sion, 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 delays) the rlogin is transparent. Flow control via ^S/^Q and flushing of input and output on interrupts are handled properly. ENVIRONMENT
The following environment variable is utilized by rlogin: TERM Determines the user's terminal type. SEE ALSO
rsh(1) HISTORY
The rlogin command appeared in 4.2BSD. BUGS
Rlogin will be replaced by telnet(1) in the near future. More of the environment should be propagated. Linux NetKit (0.17) August 15, 1999 Linux NetKit (0.17)
