Enabling Rexec ????

Can someone tell me how I would enable Rexec on a UNIX machine? And is the procedure different on the different systems - Solaris, HP-UX -etc.

Thanks~!!

to enable Rexec you will need to comment out one line in the file /etc/pam.d/rexec. Here is a sample of the file *Your file might be diffrent:
Code:
#auth       required     /lib/security/pampwdb.so shadow nullok
auth       required     /lib/security/pamnologin.so
account    required     /lib/security/pampwdb.so

To enable rexec, the line referring to the pam_nologin.so module must be
commented out:

#auth       required     /lib/security/pampwdb.so shadow nullok
#auth       required     /lib/security/pamnologin.so
account    required     /lib/security/pampwdb.so

After this file is modified, rexec will be enabled.
**Note: If your /etc/pam.d/rexec file contains a line referring to
the pam_securetty.so module, you will not be able to rexec as root..!!
