    rlogin


    Hello All,

    I have a Redhat 9 install that is a workstation install. i need to allow it to receive rlogin commands but at the moment it wont.

    I have looked in /etc/xinetd.d/ dorectory and neither rlogin or rsh files are in there.

    Is there an easy way to install what I need or to activate what I need to get rlogins working?

    Thank in advance

    Barry..

    If I remeber correctly, the r-commands are passwordsless and un-encrypted, so you really shouldnt use it. Use the ssh stuff instead, much more safer.

    The machine is on a LAN that has no outside connection running on 10.1.1.0 IP addresses.

    Any thought?

    Thanks

    still use SSH.

    SSHd is most likely already installed and configured, so:
    a) Less work for you
    b) more secure

    you can use tools such as Putty to connect to the linux box from win32 machines.
