       llogin - Connect to a LAT service


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


       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 consoles.

       -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 screen.

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

       -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.
