rlogin - Unix, Linux Command
NAMErlogin - remote login
SYNOPSISrlogin [-8EKLdx] [-e char] [-l username] host
DESCRIPTIONRlogin starts a terminal session on a remote host host.
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 sides stop and start characters are other than ^S/^Q .|
|-E||The -E option stops any character from being recognized as an escape character. When used with the -8 option, this provides a completely transparent connection.|
|-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 \nnn.|
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 transparent. Flow control via ^S/^Q and flushing of input and output on interrupts are handled properly.
ENVIRONMENTThe following environment variable is utilized by rlogin:
|TERM||Determines the users terminal type.|
HISTORYThe rlogin command appeared in BSD 4.2 .
BUGSRlogin will be replaced by telnet(1) in the near future.
More of the environment should be propagated.
