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.
Set logging options. The following are available:
Log to /dev/mono. (only useful if you have my mono monitor driver or mdacon
and a second monitor)
Log to stderr. Use this for debugging or testing combined with
Log to syslog(3). This is the default if no options are given.
Don't fork and run the background. Use this for debugging.
Verbose. The more of these there are the more verbose rmtermd will be.
Displays help for using the command.
Show the version of rmtermd.
