rsh permission denied
I am having an issue where I am getting a permission denied message when I tried to RSH into a Linux Red Hat AS 3.0 box from Windows 2000.
Rsh is running on both sides, /etc/xinetd.d/rsh is enabled, /etc/securetty is set to rsh.
Please help. what I am missing.
I'll say this as politely as possible...
Stop acting like this... 3 time the same post on diferent Forums...
dont be a piss off and learn to be as patient as all the other
Have you edited the .rhost file in the home directory in RH ? You have to open that hidden file and list a list of hosts (IP if the hostname is not being resolved) from you want to do rsh to the RH.
yes, I edited the .rhosts file - named the Fully qualify name of the host trying to remote in to RH.
I would recomend you to post some more info. Check also /etc/hosts.allow, /etc/hosts.deny and .equiv. Check you firewall settings.. And if still not working and if is not sensitive if you are in lan post some tcpdump output of your transacions.
Can you tell me what needs to be setup in order for rsh to work?
I do not have RH , So I do not know where is you network services listed
May be in:
in which case you should have entry for in.rshd and in.rlogind have
and check if the daemon is forced to ignore .rhosts files (see options)
Or may be in :
/etc/xinetd.d/rsh check if you have this file
Live /etc/hosts.[denay|allow] files empty or otherways input the right info for rsh.
use chkconfig to restart specifically rsh
or restart all inetd or xinetd depending in your case.
And check first with
rsh localhost or your hostname
Check form the remote windows host
If does not work check if between RH and WIN some Firewall (including those two machines)
that is translating some of rsh port numbers.
