Re: ssh vs rsh

> LOTS and lots of clusterers use rsh or a lower-overhead replacement

I agree, if we are talking only about the use for a cluster within a
private network, there is no point in using ssh and you are better off
using rsh for some needs. There is no harm in having both rsh and ssh
present, using ssh for root access and normal low-load activities, rsh
when you have reason to worry about the overhead. Setting rsh for root
used to be simple, but became a mess once pam was introduced.
