My desktop "truffula" and laptop "humfish" are connected by ethernet.
Telnet, rlogin, and ftp work, but rlogin always requires a password.
Humfish can run xv on truffula's X server.
Truffula exports filesystems which humfish mounts by NFS.
Given any arguments except a hostname, rsh and rcp commands fail in
both directions with the message
However, rsh given only a hostname prompts for a password.
/usr/bin/rsh is -r-sr-xr-x on both systems.
Both systems are named in /etc/hosts.equiv on both systems.
Creating .rhosts files does not help. /etc/host.conf looks like
order hosts bind
on both systems. What else do I need? How do I track this down?
I've looked all over Linux NAG and the crab book.
