Are the machines in the same network? Do you have a firewall in the middle?

THe only firewall I have ever worked with asks authentication to the firewall first, and then to the machine proper. Nevertheless is my undertsnading that you can configure the firewall to let pass remote calls without authentication. I am sure this is possible because we have only one brand of firewall and ones beheave the way you describe (double login) while others let you go directly to the machine (as long as you are authorized of course). So speak to whoever is administering the firewall, if you are doing it yourself may be you would prefer to create a rule that let certain machines and/or users go through the firewall without benn required for a password.

  Since rdump is dependant in all this stuff working properly, I am pretty certain that once you solve the rlogin issue you remote dumps will run properly.
