rcmd allocate ports above 1024 ? (pb with rshd)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
It seems that latest glib-2.1.90 (rcmd ?) allocates local
port above 1024 to clients like rlogin or rsh, which causes
authentication to fail in in.rshd and in.rlogind, because
these servers check that client's source port is in the
(do a strace /usr/bin/rsh remote_host cmd and search
the socket that binds on port 514 for example).
I have been trying all day to figure out why rshd is not working! I have the
same identical problem.
