I am trying to use 'rsh <hostname> -l <usename> -n ls '. This works from NT to Unix when the NT user name has no spaces. However I have users who are set up in the form 'Fred Bloggs'. I have tried all sorts of patterns in the .rhosts file on the Unix system all to no avail. Any ideas ?

If you still have the host in hosts.equiv, have you tried to remove user's .rhosts file.
If this fails too (some undocumented restrictions in UNIX's userbames), you need a patched ruserok() in libc.{a,so} .
