remsh/rcp from HP-UX 11i against a W2003 R2

Hi guys,

I'm trying make remsh/rcp against a W2003 R2, but always obtain "Permission denied" message. I've followed the little available SUA's documentation and looks like a very simple HP-UX remsh/rcp configuration but it is not really it.
1.- Uncomment the following lines into /etc/inetd.conf:
shell stream tcp nowait NULL /usr/sbin/in.rshd in.rshd -a
exec stream tcp nowait NULL /usr/sbin/in.rexecd in.rexecd
login stream tcp nowait NULL /usr/sbin/in.rlogind in.rlogind -a

2. Starting inet daemon by /etc/init.d/inet start.

3.- Creating a .rhosts file into user's home directory.

Somebody has a previous experience configuring the SUA subsystem under W2003 R2? Any hint/trick about?

Thanks in advance

Shalom,

Thankfully windows has no real equivalent to this service on Unix.

The trick is to use Secure Shell (openssh) on Unix and a openssh server on Windows.

Then you will be able to use password free authentication and have an encrypted data stream.

Re: remsh/rcp from HP-UX 11i against a W2003 R2

you have to "enable" the "r-services" on the windows side (if thats where you're trying to run on).

usernames and passwords are not what you'd expect either...

usually WINDOWSDOMAIN\user@Passwd (if I remember correctly, which is a big if)
