rshd vs. rexecd

Sun 5.8

Though I'd like to be using SSH, my client refuses to do so. So, I'm forced to use rsh/rexec for remote commands. My question is....when running a remote command via "rsh hostname <command>", do I need to have rexecd running, or just rshd on the remote server?

Thanks in advance for your help!

rshd is sufficient for that commandline
