rsh : connection refused problem on RH9
I installed MPICH on my RH9 box. MPICH uses rsh for communicating with localhost. It has occured to me that rsh is refusing conections.
I searched on the net and found that I need to make a .rhosts file in every user directory and it should have the hostname & username to use for rsh.
Even a command like rsh localhost /bin/ls is returning connection refused.
I saw a previous post on this forum which said that there was need to make a rsh file for xinetd to start it. I dont have that file looks like.
How do I go about creating it. & making rsh work??.Please help,
