Re: configuring rexec in hpux

Hi Sreer,

You just need to enable the following line from /etc/inetd.conf file. that's it

exec stream tcp nowait root /usr/lbin/rexecd rexecd

Once uncomment the above line, restart the inetd daemon by runing the following command.

#inetd -c
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

From a safety point of view it could be better to do

# ssh user@system 'command'

Hope this helps!
