xtelnet is a terminal server program for use by GNUspool where
the destination is a server which accepts ``reverse telnet''
protocol. Data is accepted on standard input.
This is the host name or IP address to be used to access the
printer. In GNUspool setup files, it may be appropriate to
substitute $SPOOLDEV or $SPOOLPTR here.
-p port number
This is the port number (or name in /etc/services to be used. In
GNUspool setup files, it may sometimes be appropriate to substitute
$SPOOLDEV here, but this is unlikely.
Make n connection attempts before giving up trying to connect to
In conjunction with -l option, sleep n seconds between attempts
to connect to the server.
Sleep n seconds before exiting, after closing the connection to the
server. This is sometimes necessary with some servers, as GNUspool
operates too fast for them. However you may prefer to use the
"closewait" option in the setup file.
Specify ``linger time'' in seconds (which may be fractional) for the
connection. This is likewise necessary with some servers.
Debug. Displays activities on standard error.
xtelnet generates any appropriate diagnostics on standard
error. Use the "fberror" and/or "logerror" keywords in the setup
file to record such errors.
Normal termination is denoted by an exit code of zero.
Device appears to be offline.
Some kind of device error, failure to connect etc.
