    Command:

    tcpclient

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           tcpclient [ opts ] host port prog
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           opts  is a series of getopt-style options.  host is one argument.  port
           is one argument.  prog consists of one or more arguments.
    
           tcpclient attempts to connect to a TCP server. If it is successful,  it
           runs  prog, with descriptor 6 reading from the network and descriptor 7
           writing to the network. It also sets up several  environment  variables
           (see tcp-environ(5) ).
    
           The  server's  address  is  given by host and port.  port may be a name
           from /etc/services or a number.  host may be 0, referring to the  local
           machine,  or  a  dotted-decimal  IP  address, or a host name; it is fed
           through qualification using dns_ip4_qualify.
    
           If the server has several IP addresses, tcpclient tries each address in
           turn.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           General options:
    
           -q     Quiet. Do not print error messages.
    
           -Q     (Default.) Print error messages.
    
           -v     Verbose. Print error messages and status messages.
    
           Connection options:
    
           -T x+y Give  up  on  the connection attempt after x+y seconds. Default:
                  2+58. When a host has several IP addresses, tcpclient  tries  to
                  connect  to the first IP address, waits x seconds, tries to con-
                  nect to the second IP address, waits x seconds,  etc.;  then  it
                  retries  each  address  that  timed  out,  waiting y seconds per
                  address. You may omit +y to skip the second try. Before  version
                  0.88, tcpclient(1) will use only x (default: 60).
    
           -i localip
                  Use  localip as the IP address for the local side of the connec-
                  tion; quit if localip is not available. Normally tcpclient  lets
                  the operating system choose an address.
    
           -p localport
                  Use  localport as the TCP port for the local side of the connec-
                  tion; quit if localport is  not  available.  Normally  tcpclient
                  lets the operating system choose a port.
    
           -d     Delay  sending  data  for  a  fraction  of a second whenever the
                  remote host is responding slowly. This is currently the default,
                  but  it may not be in the future; if you want it, set it explic-
                  environment  variable  $TCPLOCALHOST. A common choice for local-
                  name is 0.
    
           -r     (Default.) Attempt to  obtain  $TCPREMOTEINFO  from  the  remote
                  host.
    
           -R     Do not attempt to obtain $TCPREMOTEINFO from the remote host.
    
           -t n   Give  up  on  the $TCPREMOTEINFO connection attempt after n sec-
                  onds. Default: 26.
