short anwer: Don't.
longer answer: Allow rsh on the remote servers (check out hosts.allow & hosts.deny in /etc), make sure it passes thru tcp wrappers they may be using (/etc/xinet.d/* if I remember correctly), and then add the hostname of the connecting host to that users ~/.rhosts file on the server. Thats it.

BUT, You should use ssh and configure that for passwordless access as described here:
