       xrlogin  -  start  an xterm that uses ssh (or optionally rlogin or telnet) to connect to a
       remote host


       xrlogin [-l username] [-rlogin|-telnet] [xterm options] remote-host


       Xrlogin opens an xterm window and runs ssh, rlogin or telnet to login to a remote host.

       Xrlogin automatically passes the -name argument to xterm with a value of  "xterm-hostname"
       where  hostname is the name of the remote host.  This allows the user to specify resources
       in their server's resource manager which are specific to xterms from a  given  host.   For
       example,  this feature can be used to make all xterm windows to a given remote host be the
       same color or use a specific font or start up in a specific place on the screen.   Xrsh(1)
       passes the same string so they are compatible in this regard.

       Xrlogin  specifies  that  the  default  title  for  the new xterm will be "hostname" where
       hostname is the name of the remote host.   This  and  the  -name  argument  above  can  be
       overridden with xterm-options on the command line.

       One could also use xrlogin's sister command xrsh(1) to open a window to a remote host.  In
       the case of xrsh, the xterm would run on the remote host  and  use  X  as  the  connection
       protocol  while  xrlogin would run the xterm on the local host and use rlogin or telnet as
       the connection protocol.  See xrsh(1) for a discussion of the merits of each scheme.


       -l username
              When not using -telnet, use username as the id to login to the remote host.

              Use the rlogin protocol to open the connection.  In  general  rlogin  is  preferred
              because  it  can  be configured to not prompt the user for a password.  Rlogin also
              automatically propagates window size change signals (SIGWINCH) to the  remote  host
              so that applications running there will learn of a new window size.

              Use  the -telnet protocol to open the connection. Use of telnet provided mostly for
              hosts that don't support rlogin.


       Make sure that the local host is specified in the .rhosts file on the remote  host  or  in
       the remote hosts /etc/hosts.equiv file.  See rlogin(1) for more information.


       xrlogin -bg red yoda
              Start a local red xterm which connects to the remote host yoda using rlogin.

       xrlogin -telnet c70
              Open a local xterm which connects to the remote host c70 using telnet.
