remote shell error message


I am trying to rsh to another computer and this is the error I get:
% rsh cserver -n echo $SHELL
poll: protocol failure in circuit setup

What does that mean? What kind of failure?
Please help me if you have an idea.

If I just do:
% rsh cserver
then it promps me for a password, and seem to work.

But It does not work in the other direction. From cserver to this computer. Although I have set them up (as far as I know )
identically.

From cserver to "this computer" gives me "Connection refused"

thanks Martin

You really should be using ssh, anyway :)

As for the "connection refused" part ...
most likely candidates are:
1.) /etc/services
2.) /etc/inetd.conf (or xinet.d/rsh if you're on RH)
3.) /etc/hosts.deny & /etc/hosts.allow
4.) a firewall of some sort :)


Cheers,
Tink
