annyoing messages from rsh

This is my passwordless SSH connection:

Connection to localhost closed.
[kc40@slave ~]$ ssh localhost date
Wed Aug 3 00:36:08 BST 2005
[kc40@slave ~]$ ssh localhost
Last login: Wed Aug 3 00:35:52 2005 from slave
[kc40@slave ~]$

It's good!
However, this is my passwordless RSH connection:

[kc40@slave ~]$ rsh localhost date
connect to address Connection refused
Trying krb4 rsh...
connect to address Connection refused
trying normal rsh (/usr/bin/rsh)
Wed Aug 3 00:36:29 BST 2005
[kc40@slave ~]$ rsh localhost
connect to address Connection refused
Trying krb4 rlogin...
connect to address Connection refused
trying normal rlogin (/usr/bin/rlogin)
Last login: Wed Aug 3 00:36:13 from slave
[kc40@slave ~]$

Does anyone know how to make rsh stop doing whatever it's doing that it's getting connection refused twice? I have edited the /etc/xinetd.d/rsh and /etc/xinetd.d/rlogin files, setting 'disable' to 'no'. Help most appreciated!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
