Re: rsh on Fedora

I added 'rsh' to /etc/securetty and also pts/0 through pts/7. I am now able to rsh to localhost. But I still can't do a password-less rsh from root on another host though I have added the host-name to .rhosts on the server??

Thank you - Krish

You didn't say, but if you are trying to do this as root, there are
other things you must do as well. You must add 'rsh' to /etc/securetty
and you will probably also have to add a few of 'pts/0', 'pts/1', etc.
