Not allow rcp


I have four RH4 server , I can use rcp to copy file between servers , any user , any direction works fine .

Now I just found that one of user have problem to allow rcp from other servers , but this user can rcp file to other server , even I set ( + + , IP userid , hostname userid etc ) to .rhosts but still not work , the error is as below , it is strange that only this user in this server can not allow rcp , others is OK . can advise what will be the possible reason of it ?

Thanks.

Trying krb4 rcp...
trying normal rcp (/usr/bin/rcp)

You should not have to bother with a .rhosts file if kerberos is in place. The "Trying krb4 rcp..." message is telling me that. Kerberos should handle the authentication and permit the user to use the remote commands, such as rcp. My guess is that an entry is not correct or a ticket has expired for that particular user in kerberos causing it to give a permission denied response. Take a look at some of the kerberos commands. Sorry I can't be more specific, it has been quite some time since I used kerberos.
