Errors while trying to run true on (username) with rsh (Connection Refused)


Hi all,

I am very new to LINUX and I need it to work on some open source packages. I was trying to install those packages but have been unsuccessful in my attempts.

While configuring a file with the proper prefix address I am getting the following errors :-
.
.
.
checking for rsh... /usr/kerberos/bin/rsh
checking whether /usr/kerberos/bin/rsh works... no
Errors while trying to run true on dasrman with rsh
connect to address 163.188.148.84: Connection refused
connect to address 163.188.148.84: Connection refused
trying normal rsh (/usr/bin/rsh)
checking for ssh... /usr/bin/ssh
checking whether /usr/bin/ssh works... no
Errors while trying to run true on dasrman with ssh
Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password).
.
.
.
rman is my username

I shall be very grateful if somebody could quickly help me with this problem as I am in a hurry. Please note that I am not familiar with LINUX and would appreciate if you guys could give me a detailed solution (stepwise)

Thanks a million
Regards,
Ripudaman

Well, first we'd like to know your distro and version; please add it to your profile.
eg Centos 5.3
That way we can tailor our responses appropriately.
Secondly, if your distro has a package mgr (& most do) then its highly recommended you use that to install software if at all possible. Doing it by hand can be a nightmare.
what Sw are you trying to install?
As a rule, plain text protocols like rsh are not recommended as they are trivial to read the user/passwd/info from.
Normal recommendation would be ssh.

Oops I should have described that in my message,

Red Hat 4 Pack 6

I am trying to install MPICH on my system. It is an open source software required as a background to the other packages I need to use. I don't think the package manager shall be able to install this becaise all the documentation is given for its installation from the terminal.

Regards,
Ripudaman
