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
-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
-h -? Displays help for using the command.
-V Show the version of rmtermd.
