     rxtelnet - start a telnet and forward X-connections.


     rxtelnet [-l username] [-k] [-t telnet_args] [-x xterm_args] [-K kx_args]
              [-w term_emulator] [-b telnet_program] [-n] [-v] host [port]


     The rxtelnet program starts an xterm window with a telnet to host host.
     From this window you will also be able to run X clients that will be able
     to connect securely to your X server. If port is given, that port will be
     used instead of the default.

     If setting up the X forwarding failes, rxtelnet will still telnet in to
     the remote host, but without X forwarding.

     The supported options are:

     -l      Log in on the remote host as user username.

     -k      Disables keep-alives.

     -t      Send telnet_args as arguments to telnet.

     -x      Send xterm_args as arguments to xterm.

     -X      Send kx_args as arguments to kx.

     -w      Use term_emulator instead of xterm.

     -b      Use telnet_program instead of telnet.

     -n      Do not start any terminal emulator.

     -v      Be verbose.


     To login from host foo (where your display is) to host bar, you might do
     the following.

     1.   On foo: rxtelnet bar

     2.   You will get a new window with a telnet to bar.  In this window you
          will be able to start X clients.
