unix rwho

    I was looking over the documentation and noticed that the Symbolics
    supports something called unix-rwho service; however, upon looking it
    up in the TCP code, I didn't see that it really *did* anything except 
    intercept rwho packets from unix hosts and store them in a variable.
    Does anyone have any functions to make use of this information, such
    as something that will do the equivalent of unix's rwho command?  Or 
    even better, a replacement server that will send information back to 
    Unix's rwho server, so that information about the lisp machines show
    up in rwho's done on unix?



The Unix RWHO server has been removed in 7.2.  It is still in the files
but commented out at the moment.  It was removed because it is not a
standard Internet or lispm protocol and no one complained that it didn't
work.  The questions were more like "Why is this here?".  If you want a
hack that will give better information than the Unix RWHO, take a look
at the server-finger hack in SYS:EXAMPLES;.
