RSH Commands and Adding Proxies.

Good morning all,

VMS Server = VMS1
Remote Host = HOST1
User = USER1

When I try to run the following RSH command, I get the following error when submitted from HOST1.

rsh VMS1 -l USER1 "@$dev:[dir]file.job/output=dev:[dir]file.log"

VMS1: TCPIP$RSH - Permission denied - VMS user:USER1
rsh: can't establish connection

When I look at the proxy settings, USER1 only has type C for HOST1, but type CD for HOST2/3/4 as shown below. I can run the above RSH command from HOST2/3/4 with no problem.

VMS User_name: USER1
TYPE: CD
USER_ID: *
HOST_NAME: HOST2, HOST3, HOST4

VMS User_name: USER1
TYPE: C
USER_ID: *
HOST_NAME: HOST1

What is the difference between Type C and Type D?

How can I add the D to the HOST1 proxy?

I have tried logging as the SYSTEM account and used the command:

add proxy USER1 /host=HOST1 /remote_user=* /permanent

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

add proxy /permanent
Adds the entry ONLY to the permanent proxy database. You have to restart rsh to make the changes effective. Try the command again without the /permanent.
