getting ssh installed & configured in Redhat

Good morning All,

How does one go buy first:
1. Installing ssh in redhat properly, i did a yum list rsh* and it says *installed* but it doesn't seem to be as the files are not there etc...

2. If I do a yum install , i get "Package rsh-0.17-38.el5.x86_64 installed and not available"

I will start with just that as my question, your help is much appreciated.

Re: getting ssh installed & configured in Redhat

Do you need RSH or SSH?

Run chkconfig --list | grep

To identify if it's installed.

Enable with:

chkconfig on

Re: getting ssh installed & configured in Redhat

sorry i meant rsh, here are the results to the commands you wanted me to run.

chkconfig --list | grep rsh +
gives me nothing,

which indicates that it isn't installed.

why does yum list rsh* indicate that the package is installed when chkconfig doesn't.

Re: getting ssh installed & configured in Redhat

Then try running:

yum install rsh-server

You already have installed the rsh client.
