remsh permission denied
Posted on 1997-03-18
I have recently installed SCO Open Server on a couple of machines which communicate via ethernet to a couple of NCR 3500 machines.
Occasionally I need to edit a file on the SCO machines remotely from the 3500's from a script run as root.
According to SCO documentation I need an entry in /etc/passwd plus an entry in .rhosts in the root directory, in the format hostname root, for remshd to validate the logon. I have done both of these but still get the message:-
remsh:can't establish remote.
I have also put an entry in /etc/hosts.equiv
the hostname is present in /etc/hosts.
I'm sure that I'm overlooking something simple like permissions somewhere.
Thanks in advance
