telnet vs. rlogin on local network

telnet vs. rlogin on local network

Post by David Richar » Mon, 13 May 1996 04:00:00

I sometimes use telnet to connect to another machine
on the same network. I know I can use rlogin as well
but I'm not clear on the advantages or disadvantages
of one over the other (if any exist)
Many thanks for any insight(s)!!

1. telnet vs. rsh vs. rlogin ???

I use telnet when logging into remote hosts, but I know rsh and rlogin
can do basically the same thing.  

1. What are the advantages/disadvantages of using these commands?
   I guess I'm trying to find out if one is particularly BETTER than
   the others.

2. Does anyone know of documentation (books or Web sites) that
   possibly compare these commands?  I know I can read the man pages
   but that doesn't really give me a GOOD side-by-side comparison.

Your comments and opinions are appreciated!
