       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 "set host".

       Normally this daemon will be run from dnetd(8) rather than by hand.


       -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

       -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.

       On Linux:

          # rmtermd

       On the PDP-11:

          $ set host pclnx
