Tools problem using rsh for ordinary users!

I'm going to use the remote tape via rsh , I think that all the necessary process have been done as below:

(suppose the machine name that want to use tape is : m1
& the source machine is: m2 )
1-in m2 machine i add: +
m1 in .rhosts file.
2-in m2 machine add m1 in /etc/hosts.equiv
3-in m1 machine also put m2 in /etc/hosts.equiv

But rsh just work for root from m1 machine & the ordinary users from m1 machine get "permission denied" .

what's the problem you think ?

Are they getting "permission denied" for login or to
run the command(s) to use the tape drive?
The latter would be more likely.

For logging to that machine , it doesn't have any problem but by using rsh as below for an ordinary user i get permission denied msg:

% rsh m1 mt -f /dev/rmt/1mbn st

What are the permissions on the "mt" command
on the remote machine?

This is 555 for mt command.

The next question may be obvious but have you
logged in to the remote (via telnet) and as an "ordinary"
user, and can you execute the mt command fro the
command line?

Also, ordinary users may not have access to the device itself.
What are the perms on /dev/rmt/1mbn ?

for /dev/rmt/1mbn it has full permission .but as i checked the same problem ( perm denied for ordinary users) occured for some remote services like rcp , rsh ,...

(one point is that the solaris on the resource machine is 2.6 & for the other machine is 8.0)

Any idea!
