I am user X and I have an account on boxA and boxB

If I remote a command to boxA from boxB, does my .profile run?
Doesn't seem to.

Database connections that worked within perl scripts, executed
while logged onto boxA, don't work when invokde via rsh on another box.

I can rsh to boxA from boxB, and everything works fine from the command
line.  my .rhosts are good.

Is there a way to obtain the env that .profile sets up?

Is there a good faq for rsh that talks about these things?
