Is the rsh/rlogin server package installed (rsh-server on RedHat or similar)?

Is rsh enabled? On RedHat or similar you can do `chkconfig rsh on'. On other systems you may need to edit the inetd/xinetd config files.

Thanks for the quick response!  However...

1)  # rpm -qa | grep rsh
rsh-0.17-14

2)  Tried chkconfig rsh on... didn't help

3)  Previously created xinetd.d/rsh with the following:

service rsh
{
        disable = no
        flags           = REUSE
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        user            = root
        server          = /usr/bin/rsh
        server_args     = -l -a
        log_on_failure  += USERID
}


The result in /var/log/messages when I restarted xinitd was:

Sep 13 10:19:34 rtobias-linux xinetd[15427]: Starting reconfiguration
Sep 13 10:19:34 rtobias-linux xinetd[15427]: Server /usr/kerberos/sbin/ftpd is not executable [line=10]

Sep 13 10:19:34 rtobias-linux xinetd: xinetd -HUP succeeded


Guess I gotta boost the value on this thing a bit.  :-)

Says that you don't have the server componets for rsh/rlogin/rcp installed. All you have at present is the client tools.

You need to delete xinetd.d/rsh, then install rsh-server from your distro CD's, and then do 'chkconfig rsh on'
