8. rlogin

rlogin command logs into a specified remote host and connects your local terminal to the remote host. The remote terminal type is the same as that given in the TERM local environment variable. The terminal or window size is also the same, if the remote host supports them, and any changes in size are transferred.

When using the rlogin command, you can create a link to your path using a host name as the link name. For example:

# ln -s /usr/bin/rlogin HostName
# Hostname -8

Using HostName automatically uses the rlogin to log in to the remote host named HostName.

rlogin allows access to the remote host without the use of a passwd. For details, See section `rcmd' in The GNU C Library Reference Manual.
