NAME

rmtermd - Old style DECnet terminal services for Linux
 

SYNOPSIS

rmtermd
 
[options]
 
Options:
 
[-dvVh] [-l logtype]

DESCRIPTION

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 "set host".
 
 
 
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)
 
-le Log to stderr. Use this for debugging or testing combined with -d.
 
-ls Log to syslog(3). This is the default if no options are given.
-d
Don't fork and run the background. Use this for debugging.
-v
Verbose. The more of these there are the more verbose rmtermd will be.
-h -?
Displays help for using the command.
-V
Show the version of rmtermd.
