RSH not working... help

Hi All,

I've just installed a new computer in my office with red hat 9 and let say Computer A. Computer A finally can connect to the network and can rsh computer B, C and D. But the weird thing is computer B, C and D can't rsh to A. All B, C and D can rsh to each other.

I have tried to check the settings at /etc/host and /etc/sysconfig/network, they are all seem correct to me.

Do I miss some config for rsh? are there any special treatment for rsh?

Thanks in advance.
With kind regards,

Did you set up your hosts.equiv and/or .rhosts files as appropriate? RSH is pretty insecure and probably shouldn't be used except in a few circumstances. In most cases, you're generally best going off with passwordless SSH (accompilished via host keys(.
