PROGRAM:

NAME


xrlogin - start an xterm that uses ssh (or optionally rlogin or telnet) to connect to a
remote host

SYNOPSIS


xrlogin [-l username] [-rlogin|-telnet] [xterm options] remote-host

DESCRIPTION


Xrlogin opens an xterm window and runs ssh, rlogin or telnet to login to a remote host.

Xrlogin automatically passes the -name argument to xterm with a value of "xterm-hostname"
where hostname is the name of the remote host. This allows the user to specify resources
in their server's resource manager which are specific to xterms from a given host. For
example, this feature can be used to make all xterm windows to a given remote host be the
same color or use a specific font or start up in a specific place on the screen. Xrsh(1)
passes the same string so they are compatible in this regard.

Xrlogin specifies that the default title for the new xterm will be "hostname" where
hostname is the name of the remote host. This and the -name argument above can be
overridden with xterm-options on the command line.

One could also use xrlogin's sister command xrsh(1) to open a window to a remote host. In
the case of xrsh, the xterm would run on the remote host and use X as the connection
protocol while xrlogin would run the xterm on the local host and use rlogin or telnet as
the connection protocol. See xrsh(1) for a discussion of the merits of each scheme.

OPTIONS


-l username
When not using -telnet, use username as the id to login to the remote host.

-rlogin
Use the rlogin protocol to open the connection. In general rlogin is preferred
because it can be configured to not prompt the user for a password. Rlogin also
automatically propagates window size change signals (SIGWINCH) to the remote host
so that applications running there will learn of a new window size.

-telnet
Use the -telnet protocol to open the connection. Use of telnet provided mostly for
hosts that don't support rlogin.

COMMON PROBLEMS


Make sure that the local host is specified in the .rhosts file on the remote host or in
the remote hosts /etc/hosts.equiv file. See rlogin(1) for more information.

EXAMPLES


xrlogin -bg red yoda
Start a local red xterm which connects to the remote host yoda using rlogin.

xrlogin -telnet c70
Open a local xterm which connects to the remote host c70 using telnet.

Use xrlogin online using onworks.net services
