RUSERS(1)                   General Commands 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 idle time (in minutes), and the remote host
             they logged in from (if applicable).

     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
             excessively 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 rpcbind(8)),
             and cannot accommodate any RPC-based services.  The host may be

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

     The rusers command appeared in SunOS.

     The sorting options are not implemented.
