rsh : poll: protocol failure in circuit setup

I have two machines. I wanted to use MPICH which uses rsh for communication. When i say
"rsh /bin/ls" I get correct result. When I "rsh /bin/ls"

I get the "poll: protocol failure in circuit setup" error.

my .rhosts file has both the hosts mentioned condor condor

my hosts.equiv also has both the hosts mentioned

The rsh entry in xinetd.d directory has "diable= no" mentioned.

I found a previous post having similar problem but he had problems with getting rsh on the same computer while my rsh doesnt work while accessing the remote computer

Any inputs will help,
Thanks a lot,
