rexec is not working


Hi,

When I issue command this command on server MACH-A, I dont get the output;
MACH-A>rexec MACH-B ls

This is not possible even the rexecd is running. Why?

The patch version are;
/usr/sbin/rexecd (DIGITAL_UNIX_V4.0F Patch 00457.00)
/usr/sbin/rexecd (DIGITAL_UNIX_V4.0F Patch 00651.00)

Re: rexec is not working

Do you get any error or the command just hangs?

Re: rexec is not working

Have you tried also running rlogin and:

rsh MACH-B ls
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?

Re: rexec is not working



First thinks first: rexec is working. Trust me.

It is just not doing what you hope it to do in the environment you are using.

:-).

Did it eveer work for you? What changed?

I assume the basic stuff works... ping MACH-B? telent MACH-B, rlogin MACH-B

What does it do for you? Nothing... it just sits there? Is there an error message?

Did you check the triple .rhosts file for the target user? Owned by that use and mode 600?

hth,
Hein.
