       remote-tty - connect to a ttysrv serial console instance


       remote-tty [-l LoginName] [-7] [-r] socket


       remote-tty  is  the  frontend  for  the  remote-tty  daemon.  It is normally invoked using
       rconsole.  It connects to the backend ttysrv process over a Unix  socket  and  allows  the
       user to view what's happening on the serial console and interact with it.


       socket The full path to the Unix socket for the ttysrv instance to connect to.

       -l loginname
              Specify the login name to use. Defaults to the username if not specified.

       -r     Set  restricted mode; don't allow changing of logging status, suspending of remote-
              tty or setting of line options.

       -7     Set 7bit mode.


       rconsole(1), remote-tty(1), ttysrv(8).
