rlogin: "no route to host", but telnet works?!?

Post by Jeff Templ » Wed, 10 Apr 1996 04:00:00



Hi,

Subject line says it all.  There are several machines to which I
routinely connect;

        rlogin host.domain.name

fails with an error "No route to host".  However,

        telnet host.domain.name

connects without complaining.  What gives?  How do I fix it?

 Check your router ports. Rlogin will attempt a connect to
"host" on port 513, while telnet will try port 23. The high
port might be blocked for traffic. -pat
