What is rsh or ssh

I wonder what rsh and/or ssh are??
What is their relation to tcp/ip ??

A very brief explanation is ok.
I googled but found nothing understandable and brief...

Little example:

I have I for example linux server runnig on my network with sshd service on it on IP 10.0.0.1. So I can remotly login to my server from another host on my network and get my shell promt runnnig. So from another host network I use command:

# ssh 10.0.0.1 ( if this client is linux)
or
use putty.exe ( from windows)

this example is on LAN network but you can also use ssh on WAN networks as well.

this must help:

http://www.linuxfocus.org/English/March2003/article273.shtml

So it means that you can use SSH (secure Shell) for remote login to another system where is sshd service runnig.  It is working on port 22 and I just add that in windows you can use for example putty.exe

also need to know about scp wich is secure copy between two systems. Windows client is pscp.exe.

I hope this help
