Problem using rsh to Sun box

Problem using rsh to Sun box

Post by Rob Fugi » Mon, 29 Aug 1994 07:11:09

I have both a Linux box and a Sunos 4.1.3 box on an ethernet.  With Linux
in text mode, I have no problem using rsh to remote shell to the Sunos box.
The Sun is YP master, Linux is a YP client, if that makes any difference.
With X running, the rsh connection fails like this...

$ rsh taz
rlogin: connection closed.

The connection gets established, then dropped, presumably because the
authentication is wrong.

What part of the authentication does Linux *not* provide, or provide
differently while in an xterm???

1. logging into a linux box remotely as root using rsh with no password

I've managed to get all other users but root to log into remote machines
with no password by

1. Setting up /etc/hosts.equiv with trusted hosts
2. Setting ~/.rhost to include trusted users

N.B. This is a standalone network in a secure room used for dev work so
security is not such an issue.

Howver root cannot log in with no password. I've added the mod specified in
the man pages for rshd ( -h )  in /etc/inetd.conf but to no avail.

Does anyone know how to do this, I've been trying for so long, with several
posts, but no-one seems to know how to do this.

Using rh6.1/6.2

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
