NAME
     rusers -- who is logged in to machines on local network

SYNOPSIS
     rusers [-al] [host ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The rusers command produces output similar to who(1), but for the list of hosts or all
     machines on the local network.  For each host responding to the rusers query, the hostname
     with the names of the users currently logged on is printed on each line.  The rusers command
     will wait for one minute to catch late responders.

     The following options are available:

     -a      Print all machines responding even if no one is currently logged in.

     -l      Print a long format listing.  This includes the user name, host name, tty that the
	     user is logged in to, the date and time the user logged in, the idle time (in min-
	     utes), and the remote host they logged in from (if applicable).

DIAGNOSTICS
     rusers: RPC: Program not registered
	     The rpc.rusersd(8) daemon has not been started on the remote host.

     rusers: RPC: Timed out
	     A communication error occurred.  Either the network is excessively congested, or the
	     rpc.rusersd(8) daemon has terminated on the remote host.

     rusers: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Timed out
	     The remote host is not running the portmapper (see rpcbind(8)), and cannot accommo-
	     date any RPC-based services.  The host may be down.

SEE ALSO
     rwho(1), users(1), who(1), rpc.rusersd(8), rpcbind(8)

HISTORY
     The rusers command appeared in SunOS.

BUGS
     The sorting options are not implemented.
