Does `rlogin' work from the local to remote host (without prompting
for a password)? This uses the same mechanism. If it doesn't, try
making sure that your .rhosts on the remote host is owned by you, has
permissions 644 or less (-rw-r--r--), your home directory isn't
group/world writable, and that it contains the canonical name of the
host you are cpio'ing from. If you are running DNS, this means the
fully qualified domain name (eg `foobar.sjpta.com' not just `foobar').
If you are not running DNS, this means the FIRST (leftmost) name
of the host in /etc/hosts.
Hope this helps,
