The latd daemon allows users to connect to a Linux system from a LAT-enabled terminal server (e.g. a DECserver). It also provides a "reverse-LAT" so that printers and modems on LAT terminal servers can be accessed from Linux.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: Support for incoming reverse-LAT connections was added. This allows users to set up LATSYM printers on VMS that print to printers attached to Linux systems. A few interesting bugs were fixed, most notably the lack of shell job-control when connecting into some systems.
Release Notes: The most important new feature is the ability to run on *BSD platforms (including Apple Darwin) as well as Linux. A bug that prevented queued connection retransmits from working was fixed. /dev/lat ports no longer show status messages.
Release Notes: This release includes a new llogin program, and several reverse-LAT bugfixes.
Release Notes: This version features support for multiple ethernet adaptors and miscellaneous bug fixes.
Release Notes: Some bugs with multiple reverse-LAT connections to the same server were fixed, and a couple of other minor fixes were made.
