Do you have a specific need to use rsh? Rsh, or all the r-utils (rlogin, rsh, rcp, etc.) are very insecure, and they should be avoided, ssh is used instead. If you really must use them, what do you mean by 'not working'? Any error message, why is it not working?

.rhosts
The .rhosts file resides in a user's home directory and specifies the remote machines and remote user names that the user may use to remotely log in to the local machine.
