xlogin [-iconic][-s] host [host ...]
The script xlogin will start a remote xterm from host for a session on the remote host. For a local xterm with a remote shell see xtelnet(1)
If necessary xlogin uses the rsh(1) command for setting the remote Xauthority environment (see xauth(1)). This will done before any remote xterm(1) is called.
|This option causes xlogin to start the remote xterm(1) as an icon.|
|-s||This option causes xlogin to use the secure shell ssh(1) instead of the common remote shell rsh(1). You should have set up your local ssh(1) environment. For a description see ssh(1). Note that the remote host should have a configured sshd(8) environment too. And of course your local host should be allowed as ssh(1) client on the remote system.|
Xlogin will use the value of the environment variabel XLOGINRSH instead of the remote shell rsh(1).
