  I have a need to remotely run server processes for an application.  The clients are Windows 2000 Pro and the Server is Windows 2000.  I have installed the W2K Resource kit on both the server and the client.

   When I try to execute a job, here is the result

C:\Program Files\Resource Kit>rsh bbmus1o -l wundjous d:\supervisor\api
> bbmus1o.bbmus.bbraun.com:Connection refused
rsh: can't establish connection

any ideas?

at 1st, we need more information around your question:

1. what does "remotely" mean? the two servers are on same LAN or isolated by internet zone even firewall between them?

2. how do the servers resolve their names? by dns server, hosts file, wins server or lmhosts file?

3. installing RK does not mean RSH service will be installed too. you should manually install remote shell service to make server side ready. to do it:

Copy Rshsetup.exe, Rshsvc.exe, Rshsvc.dll to the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder.
At the command prompt, type the following command:
rshsetup %systemroot%\system32\rshsvc.exe %systemroot%\system32\rshsvc.dll

hope it helps,

1.  They are on the same LAN, no isolation.  There are several executables that a user will have to run, but we don't want him to use a remote control tool (e.g. VNC).  Name resolution is via DNS.

2.  I have the service running on the server.  With the following command line, I am getting an "Access Denied".  

    rsh bbmus1n -l BBMUS\wundjous d:\oracle\ora_admin\atdev_exp.bat

3.  The user "BBMUS\wundjous" is in the "Administrators" group on the server.

What am I missing here?

thanks,

commonly, RshSvc returns an "Access denied" message under the following conditions:

1. the RSH client computer name is not specified in the RHOSTS file.
2. the name of the logged-on user on the RSH client computer is not present in the RHOSTS files.
3. RshSvc (using GetHostByName) failed to resolve the IP address of a computer specified in the RHOSTS files and a user is trying to access this service from that computer.
4. in windows 2000, the "Register this connection's address in DNS" option is checked.
