"secure" rshd package (or any automated, non-ftp file copying)

Post by A. P. Harr » Thu, 22 Jun 1995 04:00:00



I'm looking for a reasonably secure rshd package.  I.e., should disable
wildcards in user .rhosts, do fascist logging, etc.  The logdaemon package
looks nice, but for the life of me I can't get it to compile, and I've
compiled lots of software in my day.

Alternatively, can someone suggest an alternate way to securely copy files
over the network automatically?  'mirror' is ruled out, since it's really
only suited for anon-ftp stuff, which won't do.  What are people using?

You can always use the tcpwrapper around the daemon and do your checks
there. You should compile it yourself, as the last time I checked, the
one that comes with slackware doesn't have all the usefull options
compiled in. 7.2 is the latest version.

1. "Novell-like","non-TCP/IP","networking" OS to place Unix

Perhaps a somewhat ill-defined question, but:  Is there an OS for
Unix machines (Sun, HP, etc.) which is network oriented, like
Novell, and not dependent on TCP/IP?
