Allows you to log in to a remote host over a TCP/IP connection and start an interactive terminal session by accessing the RLOGIN application.



You can specify the IPhostname or the IPaddress, but not both.



Specifies the IP host name of the remote host.


Specifies an IP address of the remote host.


The SET HOST/RLOGIN command allows you to log in to a remote host by invoking RLOGIN client software that runs on your system. Once you start the terminal session, you can enter commands interactively on the remote host. The parameter that specifies the remote host is either an IP host name or an IP address.



Specifies that Kerberos authentication should be used for acquiring access to the remote node.


Sets the terminal emulator to one of the following terminal types: VT100, VT200, VT300, VT400, VT500.


Specifies that the current user name should be truncated to 8 characters before attempting to connect to the remote node. The qualifier is required for communication with systems that limit the size of their login names to 8 characters. The /TRUNCATE_USERNAME qualifier is ignored if /USERNAME is specified.


Specifies the user name for logging in to the remote node. The user name can be enclosed in quotes to preserve the case of the user name for case sensitive systems such as UNIX systems. If the /USERNAME qualifier is not specified, the default is the current user's user name.
