pwd

Home directory mounted on one local system as /home/username, same directory mounted on a remote system as /home/engr/username.

How to use command to use remote host pwd. For example

rsh <remote host> ls -l ~pwd

once you rsh the ls -l command you will get the listing of the user making the request on the remote host. if you want to get the listing of another user then give that path.

rsh <host> ls -l ~bob

ls -l ~pwd is wrong and the intention is redundant.

I did not make myself clear.

for example, home directory on host1 is mounted as /home/foo, and on host2 home directory mounted as /home/engr/foo. When

host1> rsh host2 ls -l ~foo
host1> /home/foo not found
