xlogin

X login service for systemd

NAME

Xlogin

SYNOPSIS

xlogin [-iconic][-s] host [host ...]

DESCRIPTION

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.

General Options

-i, -iconic
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.

EXAMPLE

xlogin localhost

ENVIRONMENT

Xlogin will use the value of the environment variabel XLOGINRSH instead of the remote shell rsh(1).
