how does rexecd work?

I have been trying to rexecd to no avail on an ULTRIX 4.0 system.
rexecd loggs "getgid: Not owner". Does anybody know how rexeced
works. I have looked at some 4.3 code and I see that it just checks
out the username and password and then does a setgid & setuid without
logging in. In my distribution rexecd is suid so how is it supposed

1. should rexecd show up under su -c "ps aux | grep rexecd" ?

I am trying to rexec a command, but so far no luck.  I have done his
before with SCO, but my Linux box at home is not cooperative.  Is
rexecd run as a seperate daemon that I should check for?  How can I
see which services are currently running at which ports?
