LOGINTOOL(8)                System Manager's Manual               LOGINTOOL(8)



NAME
       logintool - graphic login interface

AVAILABILITY
       Available  only  on  Sun  386i systems running a SunOS 4.0.x release or
       earlier.  Not a SunOS 4.1 release feature.

DESCRIPTION
       logintool is started by getty(8) to display a full  screen  window  for
       logging  in.   It  cannot be run from the shell.  It is more attractive
       than the traditional `login: ' prompt, and also provides help  for  the
       person without a username and information about the workstation.

       logintool  is  normally  invoked  on the console by getty(8), and works
       only on a frame buffer.

       If the newlogin policy in  the  policies  Network  Information  Service
       (NIS)  map  is  set to unrestricted, then logintool may create new user
       accounts in the NIS service.  The account resides on the  local  system
       if it is diskful, or on the system's boot server if the local system is
       diskless.

FILES
       /usr/share/lib/ez/login

SEE ALSO
       getty(8)

NOTES
       The Network Information Service (NIS) was formerly known as Sun  Yellow
       Pages  (YP).   The  functionality of the two remains the same; only the
       name has changed.
