RLOGIN(1)                   General Commands Manual                  RLOGIN(1)

       rlogin - remote login

       rlogin [-8EL] [-e char] [-l username] rhost
       rhost [-8EL] [-e char] [-l username]

       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(1).)  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.  With the -E option the  escape
       can be turned off.

       rsh(1), rhosts(5).

       More of the environment should be propagated.
