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

NAME
     rlogin — remote login

SYNOPSIS
     rlogin [-468DEd] [-e char] [-i localname] [-l username] host

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

     The standard Berkeley rhosts authorization mechanism is used.

     The following options are available:

     -4	   Use IPv4 addresses only.

     -6	   Use IPv6 addresses only.

     -8	   Allow 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.

     -D	   Set the TCP_NODELAY socket option which can improve interactive
	   response at the expense of increased network load.

     -E	   Stop any character from being recognized as an escape character.
	   When used with the -8 option, this provides a completely transpar‐
	   ent connection.

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

     -e	   Allow 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.

     -i	   Allow the caller to specify a different local name to be used for
	   authentication.  This option is restricted to processes with uid 0.

     -l	   Specify a different username for the remote login.  If this option
	   is not specified, your local username will be used.

     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 session, 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.

FILES
     /etc/hosts
     /etc/hosts.equiv
     /etc/auth.conf
     $HOME/.rhosts

SEE ALSO
     login(1), rsh(1), telnet(1), setsockopt(2), ruserok(3), tty(4),
     auth.conf(5), hosts(5), hosts.equiv(5), rlogind(8), rshd(8)

HISTORY
     The rlogin command appeared in 4.2BSD.

     IPv6 support was added by WIDE/KAME project.

BUGS
     The rlogin utility will be replaced by telnet(1) in the near future.

     More of the environment should be propagated.
