r-cmds & telnet error, "connect refused"
I have been trying to get rsh, rcp, rlogin and telnet to work on local network. Have set up the trusted hosts files hosts.equiv, .rhosts with host and user names and also with the "+ +" config. Keep getting "connection refused" error. Also ran ethereal and the tcp packets that repeat show [syn] flag in first packet and [rst, ack] in the second packet. Seems that TCP is not making the connection. What am I doing wrong or where might the problem be? I have DNS primary server on one of these machines which works fine to resolve hostnames and also the /etc/hostsfile has name mappings so ip address resolution with nslookup works fine.
