Description dunwoody 2000-01-03 09:20:30 UTC
When I upgraded from rsh-0.10-28.i386.rpm to rsh-0.16-1.i386.rpm, rlogin
stopped working for me (rsh still works fine).

On the remote system, I get a normal-looking message in /var/log/messages:
    Jan  3 01:10:00 dunwoody1 in.rlogind[6248]: connect from
c130441-k.smateo1.sfba.home.com
    Jan  3 01:10:01 dunwoody1 pam_rhosts_auth[6248]: allowed to
dunwoody@c130441-k.smateo1.sfba.home.com as dunwoody

On the local system (running rlogin <remotesystem>), I simply get
a "connection closed" message.

Evidently rlogin got stricter in rsh-0.16-1 in a way that I don't
understand.  I've tried changing the permissions and contents of
my /etc/hosts, /etc/hosts.{allow,deny}, /etc/hosts.equiv, and
/etc/pam.d/rlogin in various ways, all to no avail -- I still
get "connection closed".
The documentation (e.g. man in.rlogind) doesn't seem to have changed
materially.  I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions.

Fixed in rsh-0.16-3 in Raw Hide. Make sure that you pick up the new
rsh-server-0.16-3 package, the fix is in /usr/sbin/in.rlogind in that
package.
