Suspending an rlogin Connection

When you want to suspend an rlogin connection so you can return to it later, type the tilde character (~) followed by Ctrl-Z. The rlogin connection becomes a stopped process and you are placed back at the machine from which you logged in.

To reactivate the connection, type fg. You can also type the percentage sign (%) followed by the process number of the stopped process. If you do not specify a process number, % activates the process most recently suspended.

Stopped (user)
venus$ pwd
rlogin goddess
goddess$ logout

You can also type two tildes and press Ctrl-Z to suspend the current rlogin and place you at an intermediate rlogin.

For more information on the rlogin(1) command, refer to the man Pages(1): User Commands.
