Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8410
RSH and/or RCP Dies
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
While accessing my Linux PC over ethernet from a Solaris x86 box via rsh
and rcp commands, after 10 to 20 such commands the Linux host stops
responding. Looking in /var/log/messages I see an entry like this:
inetd[PID]: rsh/tcp server failing (looping), service terminated.
If the commands are successful, then this is a problem with the number of
connections per second. Inetd turns off services that are spawning
"too fast". The fix is to add a rate parameter in inetd.conf.
shell stream tcp nowait.256 root /usr/sbin/tcpd in.rshd
should fix. Please reopen this bug if not.
