How to connect two Linux Machines on same LAN but not in a Client Server Environment


I am trying to connect two independent Linux machines which are on same Local Area Network. if i use rsh then it is connected but with root.
I want connection with some restrictions.
If i have created a user on One Machine and I want to connect the two machines using that user so that the second machine could not get the full access to the other machine. How I will do this????

If this is not possible, how will I make one machine a client of other and give restricted access to users on Client Side.

Please assist me.
