Projects / latd


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.

    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.
