DESCRIPTION

This application implements the CTERM protocol over DECnet for allowing a remote DECnet host emulating a DEC VT100 terminal to connect to Linux.
 
 
 
Normally this daemon will be run from dnetd(8) rather than by hand.
 

OPTIONS

-l
Set logging options. The following are available:
 
-lm Log to /dev/mono. (only useful if you have my mono monitor driver or mdacon and a second monitor)

-ls Log to syslog(3). This is the default if no options are given.

Verbose. The more of these there are the more verbose ctermd will be.
