RUSERS(1)                  OpenBSD Reference Manual                  RUSERS(1)

     rusers - who is logged in to machines on local network

     rusers [-al] [host ...]

     The rusers command produces output similar to who(1),  but for the list
     of hosts or all machines on the local network. For each host responding
     to the rusers query, the hostname with the names of the users currently
     logged on is printed on each line. The rusers command will wait for one
     minute to catch late responders.

     The following options are available:

     -a      Print all machines responding even if no one is currently logged

     -l      Print a long format listing. This includes the user name, host
             name, tty that the user is logged in to, the date and time the
             user logged in, the amount of time since the user typed on the
             keyboard, and the remote host they logged in from (if applica-

     rusers: RPC: Program not registered
             The rpc.rusersd(8) daemon has not been started on the remote

     rusers: RPC: Timed out
             A communication error occurred.  Either the network is excessive-
             ly congested, or the rpc.rusersd(8) daemon has terminated on the
             remote host.

     rusers: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Timed out
             The remote host is not running the portmapper (see portmap(8)),
             and cannot accommodate any RPC-based services.  The host may be

     rwho(1),  users(1),  who(1),  portmap(8),  rpc.rusersd(8)

     The rusers command appeared in SunOS.

     The sorting options are not implemented.
