remote login via IPX and NVT
nlogin [-v] host
The nlogin command connects your terminal on the

host. This command is very similar to the
command, one of the standard TCP/IP utilities,
except that nlogin can only connect to
NVT servers. NVT server availability
can be determined by using the
After executing nlogin, the remote host displays

To disconnect from the remote host, enter ~.
(a tilde followed by a period). Similarly, if you are
running a shell on the local host that can perform job
control, enter ~<Ctrl>Z (or the value

return control to the shell on the local host.
Note that suspending a connection in this manner may result in
the connection being lost if it is suspended for too long.
For more information, refer to the nvt_tune.h file.
All echoing takes place at the remote site;
consequently, except for delays, the remote login is transparent.
Flow control, using <Ctrl>S and <Ctrl>Q, and
flushing of input and output on interrupts are handled properly.
The options are interpreted as follows:
print the IPX address of host after its
IPX address has been determined
nlogin is not part of any currently supported
