When issuing an rsh command to a Linux 2.0.29 machine I keep
getting Permission Denied.
I have a .rhosts file with the correct machine/user added
I have these line in my /etc/inetd.conf
shell  stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/sbin/tcpd  in.rshd -L
login  stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/sbin/tcpd in.rlogind
exec   stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/sbin/tcpd in.rexecd

I can ping, telnet etc so tcp is configured correctly.

Does rlogin work?
What's in your /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny?
Give us an example entry from your .rhosts file.
Is DNS set up correctly (so the hostnames in .rhosts are resolved correctly)?

rlogin works after prompting me for a password.
I have no entries in /etc/hosts.allow or /etc/hosts.deny. My
~/.rhosts file (600 permission, owned by me) contains entries in the form:
machine      myname
eg:
odtdev      daryl
I also have the machine name I wish to give access to in my /etc/hosts.equiv.
There is no DNS running on this machine. My DNS is operating
correctly on another machine.

Try using a full qualified machine name, like

odtdev.your.site daryl

If that doesn't work, try using the ip number instead of the machine name

123.45.6.7 daryl

I meant: Put the FQDN and/or the IP number in your .rhosts file.
