rexec in Red Hat 6.0 doesn't work

Post by fs.. » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

Hi, someone helpful:

I'm having trouble getting the 'rexec' command to work in Red Hat
6.0 (on several boxes).  I haven't done any special security setup
on these boxes (I'm behind a firewall).  I'm using the default
configuration in inetd.conf, and haven't added any entries to
/etc/hosts.allow or /etc/hosts.deny .  I have set up ~/.rhosts
correctly (as per 'man 5 hosts_access') with permissions of 0600.
In all respects, my network setup works very well.

So: why does this command merely hang:

   $ rexec stubble pwd
   <... and it hangs interminably at this point>

... as does this one:

   $ rexec -d -n stubble pwd
   rexec: Host = stubble
   rexec: Command to execute =  pwd
   Username at stubble: fred
   Password: <mumble>
   <... and again it hangs interminably>

... but  rsh  works beautifully, and almost instantly:

   $ rsh stubble pwd

I'm stumped.  Thanks in advance for your help!

1. Red Hat Linux 6.0 doesn't see my Gateway HD

Hi--I'm a newbie attempting to install Red Hat Linux 6.0 on a new Gateway
PC. I've prepared a Linux ext2 partition on my HD (below the 1024th
cylinder) using PartionMagic. However, when I attempt to install Linux, the
installation program takes me through the first few questions but then says
it can't proceed because it can't find a device to install to. I've got a
20G Ultra ATA HD that uses an Ultra ATA 66 card--could this be causing the
problem? Is it a BIOS setup problem? I've set "Plug and Play OS?" to NO in
the BIOS. Kinda cluless. Would appreciate any help. Thanks :-)
