'rsh' from NT to Unix with spaces in username

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 ?

The problem is cmd.exe on NT system. M$ just forgot to implement some method to pass quotes or escaped characters through ;-(

Oops, my answer is not realy the one you expect for your question (have not read carefully):

Try to add the NT system to /etc/hosts.equiv .

Hi
Do UNIX systems allow user login names containing spaces? I didn't think they did. You are not confusing the login name with the information in the GECOS (user information) field, which usually contains users full name, are you?
