rmtermd - Old style DECnet terminal services for Linux
[-dvVh] [-l logtype]
Allows remote PDP-11 users to connect as a terminal over DECnet.
This application implements the DTERM protocol over DECnet for allowing a remote
DECnet host emulating a DEC VT100 terminal to connect to Linux. DTERM is the
old OS-dependent network terminal protocol that predates CTERM; it is needed
to support access from PDP-11 systems, which do not support CTERM. Note that
this daemon implements the TOPS-20 variant of that protocol; the client at the
other end has to speak that version. For example, under DECnet/E (for RSTS/E)
you have to use the "unsupported" multi-protocol version of
Normally this daemon will be run from dnetd(8) rather than by hand.
- 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)
-le Log to stderr. Use this for debugging or testing combined with
-ls Log to syslog(3). This is the default if no options are
- Don't fork and run the background. Use this for
- Verbose. The more of these there are the more verbose
rmtermd will be.
- -h -?
