llogin - Connect to a LAT service


llogin [options] service
[-dvcpblhQ] [-H node] [-R port] [-n name] [-w password | -W] [-q quit char]


llogin connects your terminal to a LAT service via latd, the service name must be known to
latd for this to work.


-d Shows learned services. This is the same as latcp -d -l

-d -v Verbose form of -d. -v without -d is ignored.

-H <node>
Remote nodename. If the service is advertised by more than one node and you want to
connect to a particular node then use this switch. By default you will be connected
to the node with the highest rating.

-R <port>
Connect to a specific port on (usually) a terminal server. This is the port NAME on
the server and not the port number.

-c Do not convert typed LF to CR. By default the enter key generates LF and llogin
converts it CR as it is the most generically useful translation. This switch will
cause the enter key to send LF instead. Occasionally useful for connecting to Unix

-b Convert typed DEL to BS. By default the DEL key (keyboard, top right usually) send
DEL (ASCII 0x7f) to the remote system. This switch will cause the DEL key to send
BS (ASCII 8) instead. Useful for some Unix systems connected via terminal servers.

-l Convert output LF to VT. By default LF output is sent as CRLF which can cause
output formatting problems. Changing this to VT should preserve the output
formatting on most devices or terminal emulators.

-q <char>
Change the quit character. By default CTRL-] will quit the terminal session.
Entering a character after -q will cause CTRL-<char> to be the quit character for
that session. -q0 will disable the quit character. If you use the latter, make sure
you are connecting to a service that will disconnect you when you log out or you
will have to kill llogin from another session to get out of it!

-Q Tells latd that the service you are connecting to is queued service and not a
normal login service or port service. Unfortunately latd cannot tell whether a
remote service needs to be queued or not so the onus is on the user to specify this
switch when connecting to a queued service.

-n <name>
Sets the local connection name. By default this will be your local TTY name. In
most cases this simply affects the display of the terminal on the remote end so you
shouldn't need to change it.

-w <password>
Sends the password for the service. Only needed for services that require a
password for access. If the password given is "-" then you will be prompted for a
password and it will not be echoed. This avoids having passwords visible on the

-W Prompts for the service password. This is the same as -w- (see above).

-p Tells llogin to connect to the device named instead of a LAT service. This would
usually be a /dev/lat pseudo-terminal but could be any other device you like
really. This switch does not make the program useful as a terminal program because
there is no way to set any serial parameters, nor am I going to add them. This is
just a convenient way to use the /dev/lat ports without the overhead of programs
such as minicom.

-h Displays a brief usage description. This is the same as invoking llogin without any
parameters at all.

latcp(8), latd(8)
