I have a quirk I can't seem to solve. I have a LAN with a Linux server
here. I would like to use RSH to submit simple commands from simple
(MS) clients. Everything ran fine on our RedHat (4.0) system until
recently. The security layer seems to be set up correctly and hardware
is not a problem. For example, if I ussue the command:
rsh <Server_Name> "ps aux>$HOME/ps.out"
The following occurs:
"ps aux | grep rsh" on the Linux box reports in.rshd running (therefore
the tcp wrapper / inetd is spawning correctly). An "ls" of the $HOME
directory reports a zero length ps.out file. The client appears to be
waiting for a response.
The problem is that the client may have to wait up to 10 minutes (even
when the Linux box is unloaded). After this time, the request _still_
may not execute.
I have tried updating in.rshd with older/newer versions. I've tried
reinstalling the system libraries (they were recompiled some time ago).
I don't know what else to try! Any help would be appreciated!
