       llogin - Connect to a LAT service


       llogin [options] service
       [-dvcpblhQ] [-H node] [-R port] [-n name] [-w password | -W] [-q quit char]


       llogin connects your terminal to a LAT service via latd, the service name must be known to
       latd for this to work.


       -d     Shows learned services. This is the same as latcp -d -l

       -d -v  Verbose form of -d. -v without -d is ignored.

       -H <node>
              Remote nodename. If the service is advertised by more than one node and you want to
              connect to a particular node then use this switch. By default you will be connected
              to the node with the highest rating.

       -R <port>
              Connect to a specific port on (usually) a terminal server. This is the port NAME on
              the server and not the port number.

       -c     Do  not  convert  typed  LF to CR. By default the enter key generates LF and llogin
              converts it CR as it is the most generically useful translation.  This switch  will
              cause  the enter key to send LF instead. Occasionally useful for connecting to Unix

       -b     Convert typed DEL to BS. By default the DEL key (keyboard, top right usually)  send
              DEL  (ASCII  0x7f) to the remote system. This switch will cause the DEL key to send
              BS (ASCII 8) instead. Useful for some Unix systems connected via terminal servers.

       -l     Convert output LF to VT. By default LF output is  sent  as  CRLF  which  can  cause
              output  formatting  problems.  Changing  this  to  VT  should  preserve  the output
              formatting on most devices or terminal emulators.

       -q <char>
              Change the quit character. By  default  CTRL-]  will  quit  the  terminal  session.
              Entering  a  character after -q will cause CTRL-<char> to be the quit character for
              that session. -q0 will disable the quit character. If you use the latter, make sure
              you  are  connecting  to a service that will disconnect you when you log out or you
              will have to kill llogin from another session to get out of it!

       -Q     Tells latd that the service you are connecting to  is  queued  service  and  not  a
              normal  login  service  or  port  service. Unfortunately latd cannot tell whether a
              remote service needs to be queued or not so the onus is on the user to specify this
              switch when connecting to a queued service.

       -n <name>
              Sets  the  local  connection name. By default this will be your local TTY name.  In
              most cases this simply affects the display of the terminal on the remote end so you
              shouldn't need to change it.

       -w <password>
              Sends  the  password  for  the  service.  Only  needed  for services that require a
              password for access. If the password given is "-" then you will be prompted  for  a
              password  and  it  will  not be echoed. This avoids having passwords visible on the

       -W     Prompts for the service password. This is the same as -w- (see above).

       -p     Tells llogin to connect to the device named instead of a LAT  service.  This  would
              usually  be  a  /dev/lat  pseudo-terminal  but  could  be any other device you like
              really. This switch does not make the program useful as a terminal program  because
              there  is  no way to set any serial parameters, nor am I going to add them. This is
              just a convenient way to use the /dev/lat ports without the  overhead  of  programs
              such as minicom.

       -h     Displays a brief usage description. This is the same as invoking llogin without any
              parameters at all.
