       llogin -	Connect	to a LAT service

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

       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	gener-
	      ates 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 con-

       -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. Use-
	      ful 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	termi-
	      nal emulators.

       -q _char_
	      Change  the quit character. By default CTRL-] will quit the ter-
	      minal  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 ser-
	      vice and not a normal login service or  port  service.  Unfortu-
	      nately  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 lo-
	      cal TTY name.  In	most cases this	simply affects the display  of
	      the  terminal  on	the remote end so you shouldn't	need to	change

       -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 screen.

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

       -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.
