NAME

  telnetrc, .telnetrc -	Specifies setup	commands for a telnet session

SYNOPSIS

  $HOME/.telnetrc

DESCRIPTION

  The .telnetrc	file contains the setup	information for	a telnet session.  It
  is a hidden file in your home	directory and must be readable by the user
  logging in.

  The file can consist of multiple entries for each remote host	to which a
  user can connect.  A remote host entry consists of multiple lines.  The
  first	line is	the name of a remote host. The subsequent lines	must begin
  with blank spaces, and contain telnet	subcommands.  These subcommands	are
  processed as though they were	typed in manually. Lines beginning with	a
  number sign (#) are comment lines.  See telnet(1) for	a complete list	of
  telnet subcommands.

  To specify subcommands that apply to all systems, create an entry, using
  the word "DEFAULT" as	the system name, and specify the telnet	subcommands
  in the subsequent lines.

EXAMPLES

  The following	shows a	sample .telnetrc file:

       # Beginning of telnetrc file
       # Default subcommands that apply	to all systems
       DEFAULT
	  environ undefine USER
       # First system entry
       system1
	  set echo
	  toggle crlf
       # Second	system entry
       system2
	  set echo
	  mode line
	  toggle crlf
