rmtermd - Old style DECnet terminal services for Linux
rmtermd [options] Options: [-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.
-l Set logging options. The following are available: -lm Log to /dev/mono. (only useful if you have my mono monitor driver or mdacon and a second monitor) -le Log to stderr. Use this for debugging or testing combined with -d. -ls Log to syslog(3). This is the default if no options are given. -d Don't fork and run the background. Use this for debugging. -v Verbose. The more of these there are the more verbose rmtermd will be. -h -? Displays help for using the command. -V Show the version of rmtermd.
