Description Chris Taylor 2000-11-09 11:37:14 EST
/usr/bin/rexec (rsh-0.17-2.2) on an i686 box fails to connect to the
correct port - there seems to be a confusion over network and host
ordering of the port number.

Adding a call to ntohs on the port parameter of the rexec(3) call
fixes the problem.

(This was a fresh installation of 7.0-respin on an i686 box)
