RLOGIN(1)			   BSD General Commands Manual				RLOGIN(1)

NAME
     rlogin -- remote login

SYNOPSIS
     rlogin [-468Ed] [-e char] [-l username] [-p port] host
     rlogin [-468Ed] [-e char] [-p port] username@host

DESCRIPTION
     rlogin starts a terminal session on a remote host host.

     rlogin first attempts to use the standard Berkeley rhosts authorization mechanism.  The
     options are as follows:

     -4 	   Use IPv4 addresses only.

     -6 	   Use IPv6 addresses only.

     -8 	   The -8 option allows an eight-bit input data path at all times; otherwise par-
		   ity bits are stripped except when the remote side's stop and start characters
		   are other than '^S/^Q'.

     -E 	   The -E option stops any character from being recognized as an escape charac-
		   ter.  When used with the -8 option, this provides a completely transparent
		   connection.

     -d 	   The -d option turns on socket debugging (see setsockopt(2)) on the TCP sockets
		   used for communication with the remote host.

     -e char	   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 \nnn.

     -l username   the -l option specifies an alternate username for the remote login.	If this
		   option is not specified, your local username will be used.

     -p port	   Uses the given port instead of the one assigned to the service ``login''.  May
		   be given either as symbolic name or as number.

     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 delays) the rlogin is trans-
     parent.  Flow control via ^S/^Q and flushing of input and output on interrupts are handled
     properly.

ENVIRONMENT
     The following environment variable is used by rlogin:

     TERM  Determines the user's terminal type.

BUGS
     More of the environment should be propagated.
