According to RFC 1282 (BSD Rlogin, December 1991), "the rlogin facility provides a remote-echoed, locally flow-controlled virtual terminal with proper flushing of output. It is widely used between UNIX hosts because it provides transport of more of the UNIX terminal environment semantics than does the Telnet protocol, and because on many UNIX hosts it can be configured not to require user entry of passwords when connections originate from trusted hosts. The rlogin protocol requires the use of the TCP. The contact port is 513." Refer to RFC 1282 for more information.
