Description Ivan Teliatnikov 2000-05-29 02:05:44 UTC
Tried to use rsh on RH6.1 to mkdir on client RH6.2. On the client there is
an .rhosts file in /root directory.
in a form of:

server_name.domain_name root
server_name root

When do: rsh clein_host_name mkdir /test I get: Permission deneid.

Unable to replicate.

Some services require that reverse and forward DNS entries match.  Also, there
might be some relevant info in /var/log/messages.

Comment 2 Pekka Savola 2000-07-15 10:02:56 UTC
Test. please disregard.

I have faced the similar problem: I can not do rsh from RedHat 6.1 to RedHat
The name of the client machine (alpha00) is listed in /etc/hosts.equiv on the 
server machine (alpha03).
When I do "rsh alpha03 ls" from alpha00 I get the reply "Permission denied."
The same respond is caused by "rcp file @alpha03:".
When I try "rlogin alpha03" it asks for the password, although it shouldn't.
An interesting detail can be noticed when I do repeated rlogins from alpha00 to
in the string "Last login: ..." the name of the client machine is erroneous: 
"alpah00" instead of "alpha00". The simple workaround was found: I added an
name "alpah00" to /etc/hosts.equiv. This caused rsh, rlogin and rcp to work as

It looks like a bug in the authentication system of RedHat 6.2's
since rsh, rlogin, rcp are working well between RedHat 6.1 machines.

More news about the bug. I have changed the ethernet cards on both computers
from Kingston KNE-110TX to KNE-100TX, and the bug has gone. Michael.
