For a start, the user@hostname: bit should come before destfile, e.g.


Code:
rcp sourcefile user@hostname:destfile

If your source and target machines support scp, use that instead as it's far more secure.

hi zazzybob,

lets assume i have two unix machine A & B. If i want to copy a file from system B, how will the above command work. My source file is residing on system B.

bye

Hi,

you can also do your syntax, but than you also have to enter the server B on the server A.

you are copying a file initiated by server b to server a which means server a needs also the authentication config for server b.

rcp between two unix machines

I have ensured that the Login id on both the system is the same.

I have taken care of entries in .rhosts and /etc/hosts.equiv on both the systems.

I am able to ping, ftp, rlogin between two systems.

YET rcp gives the following error:

remshd:login incorrect.

clue: rlogin is asking for passwd, which should not be the case
