Rexecd and different auth methods

Rexecd and different auth methods

Post by Ken Sma » Sat, 25 Jul 1992 03:33:25

I have machines set up which use a different authorization method
(as indicated in the "default" stanza in the file /etc/security/user);
but the rexecd daemon seems to ignore it, and tries to authenticate
using the passwd file.  This is a serious probelem, since the X server
software which runs on PCs needs to use rexec initailly to start a client.
Does anyone have any experience with this?

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?

Thanks... this is vexing, as I want to automate starting up some X
