Problem when using rcp in sles10sp1

Hi everyone, i had a problem with the command 'rcp' and i couldn't find the answer, here is the problem:
There are two servers in the network, both of them were installed with sles10sp1, the IP list as following: is linux76) is linux77)

Both of them can rlogin each other with the username 'smscp', and the shell is csh, the home dir is /eia/smscp, for example, when i login to, i can execute the following commands:
rlogin linux77
after that, i could actually login to

when i login on to, i can execute the following commands:
rlogin linux76
after that, i could actually login to

But, when i execute the following command in, the problem occurred:
rcp -rp smscp@ /eia/smscp/
after i entered the command, here is the output:
and the file did not transferred from to

when i execute the following command in, everything is ok:
rcp -rp smscp@ /eia/smscp/
no "#" occurred, no output, and the file test acctually transferred from to

i guess it was the problem with rcp, but i did not know the reason, could any one can figure out why? Thanks a lot.
