Firewall also disable still no luck.
Could any one help me for work around?
First off it's probably easier to use SSH (and more secure). now that's out of the way...
Have you installed rsh-server how about xinetd?
Is rlogin, rsh, rexec on?
(unless AS2.1 changed it from old redhat)
look for rsh, rlogin and rexec make sure they are on
/etc/hosts.equiv (put in the trusted hosts)
I think if you are root you also have to add rsh, rlogin, rexec to the bottom of /etc/securetty if you want to rsh in as root. (not required for normal users)
There you have it just remember that rsh is not secure and don't
if you get hacked...
