RSH Linux and Solaris


Hello, I am having a difficulties getting the my solaris machine to rsh to another computer that is loading a gentoo distro of linux that I can custom. I already thought about and tried to use SSH (I wouldn't be having this problem if I could) however the solaris machine does not have it so I'm left to use RSH.

I can RSH fine from the linux to the solaris but when I try to RSH from Solaris to Linux I get a "Connection refused". Can anyone help me out with why I can't go the other way?

First of all check if the service rshd started on your linux.

Does rshd really needed to be started on the client when the linux is going to be the host?
