Can't help you on this one. I have banned all Berkeley "R" protocols from every network I run for more than ten years. They are too easily subverted, I can't afford the security risk.

Nowadays this is no big deal, ssh can accomplish anything I might want to do with rsh/rlogin/rexec/telnet and the scp and sftp transports that come with ssh replace rcp and ftp also.

If you want to use ssh/sftp, though, I'm pretty up-to-date on that stuff.
