RSH/rlogin problem


When I try and RSH/RLOGIN onto a box with user root, I get the prompt but the username/password combination NEVER work. I have the password up properly on the host machine. Does rsh/rlogin not make use of ./etc/passwd and /etc/shadow?

Most unix variants do not allow remote login as root by default because it is a security risk.
Does rlogin and rsh work for a non-root user?
