    Allow the client-name, server-name, and term-type to be passed as arguments · 334e768c

    Optional, for easier use with game servers that take one of the 3 rlogin
    negotation parameters as the name/code of the door to execute. A telgate
    mode flag value argument must be provided (use 0 for default behavior)
    if you want to provide any of the other arguments to override the defaults
    (the user's alias, real name, and current detected terminal type).
