critical impact:

rsh - command not supported; use remsh (CrUn304)

CMD Impacts

Problem description

The rsh command exists on Tru64 UNIX, but not on HP-UX. However, a replacement technology exists in the remsh command.

The following rsh command options are not available on HP-UX:

  • -x - Encrypts the data transmitted between the local host and the remote host. This option requires that the local and remote hosts be configured to use Kerberos authentication in the same or trusting Kerberos realms.

  • -d - Turns on socket debugging (using setsockopt()) on the TCP sockets used for communication with the remote host.

Solution description

Use the remsh command to achieve similar results.

The rsh service was renamed to remsh because of a conflict with the existing System V command restricted shell, rsh (Rsh on Tru64 UNIX).

Review your code and the applicable manpages for more information.
