rsh connection problem

I am trying to connect to a remote server using rsh.
first i have given the following command.
[oracle@dbserver ~]$ rsh -l

now i got the following message

"connect to address Connection refused
Trying krb4 rlogin...
connect to address Connection refused
trying normal rlogin (/usr/bin/rlogin)

Now i entered the password and i got connected.

You have mail.
[oracle@ebizdev ~]$

What i want is i should get connected to remote server without entering password.

how can i do that?

any idea pls.

very simple, you should setup .rhosts files:
Configuring .rhosts

It is even beter to use ssh, rsh sends everything in plain text over the line and is known to have some security issues. (but this is only an advice..)
When you use ssh-keys you get the same results but safer..
