rsh with local variables


I am trying to do an rsh and execute the same script on a distant unix computer.
The problem is that I need to get all the local variables of the distant computer to launch correctly my script.

I'm working on AIX 4.3.3

I try to execute .profile in the rsh but it seems not to be enough.

Thanks for help.

You could set the environment variables inside the script to insure that each time you run it, it will have the required information.

There would be no way to keep the environment variables the same on both servers unless you are using a NFS home directory AND your company has standards that provide that all servers must set up exactly the same.
