RSH

Hi All,

Whenever we are giving rsh localhost date , it give an error "Permission Denied".
RHEL 6 is the version, and we're logging in as "root".
in .rhosts file I have mentioned all the details, and enabled rsh,rsync,rexec,rlogin in /etc/xinetd.d/ file

Please suggest.

Reg,
Muzaffar

here's a simple answer you may not like. STOP USING RSH. Use SSH. There are few if any reasons to use antiquated, risky, and insecure methods nowadays.

I have found that RSH is much faster when copying data over internal network (which is of course understandable since it doesn't encrypt the data)

So i see no evil in enable, do your job and disable it if you need to copy like 100 or more GB.

It's wrong to have always on, since there are secure alternatives (sftp/ssl, ssh).

Peasant.
