Use this command to start a predefined session. This is a particularly important

system administrator. If you are using telnet, the target host will prompt you for your


login name. If you are using rlogin, the host will prompt you for your password. If


you are using rlogin and your unit’s login name is entered in the ‘rhost’ file of the


target login directory, you will be logged straight in.
