SESSREG(1)							    SESSREG(1)

NAME
       sessreg - manage	utmpx/wtmpx entries for	non-init clients

SYNOPSIS
       sessreg	[-w  wtmpx-file]  [-u  utmpx-file] [-L lastlog-file] [-l line-
       name] [-h host-name] [-s	slot-number] [-x Xservers-file]	[-t ttys-file]
       [-V] [-a] [-d] user-name

DESCRIPTION
       Sessreg	is  a  simple  program	for  managing  utmpx/wtmpx and lastlog
       entries for xdm sessions.

       This version of sessreg is built	using the modern POSIX	pututxline(3c)
       interfaces,  which  no  longer  require	the slot-number, ttys-file, or
       Xservers-file mappings.	For  compatibility  with  older	 versions  and
       other  operating	 systems,  the	-s, -t,	and -x flags are accepted, but
       ignored.

USAGE
       In Xstartup, place a call like:

	      sessreg -a -l $DISPLAY -x	/etc/X11/xdm/Xservers $USER

       and in Xreset:

	      sessreg -d -l $DISPLAY -x	/etc/X11/xdm/Xservers $USER

OPTIONS
       -w wtmpx-file
	      This specifies an	alternate wtmpx	file, instead of  _PATH_WTMPX.
	      The  special  name  "none" disables writing records to the wtmpx
	      file.

       -u utmpx-file
	      This specifies an	alternate utmpx	file, instead of  _PATH_UTMPX.
	      The  special  name  "none" disables writing records to the utmpx
	      file.

       -L lastlog-file
	      This  specifies  an   alternate	lastlog	  file,	  instead   of
	      /usr/adm/lastlog,	 if  the platform supports lastlog files.  The
	      special name "none" disables  writing  records  to  the  lastlog
	      file.

       -l line-name
	      This  describes the "line" name of the entry.  For terminal ses-
	      sions, this is the final pathname	segment	of the terminal	device
	      filename	(e.g.  ttyd0).	 For X sessions, it should probably be
	      the local	display	name given to the users	session	(e.g. :0).  If
	      none  is	specified,  the	 terminal name will be determined with
	      ttyname(3) and stripped of leading components.

       -h host-name
	      This is set to indicate that the session was  initiated  from  a
	      remote host.  In typical xdm usage, this options is not used.

       -s slot-number
	      This  option  is accepted	for compatibility, but does nothing in
	      this version of sessreg.

       -x Xservers-file
	      This option is accepted for compatibility, but does  nothing  in
	      this version of sessreg.

       -t ttys-file
	      This  option  is accepted	for compatibility, but does nothing in
	      this version of sessreg.

       -V     This option causes the command to	print its version and exit.

       -a     This session should be added to utmpx/wtmpx.

       -d     This session should be deleted from utmpx/wtmpx.	One  of	 -a/-d
	      must be specified.
