Re: ssh vs rsh

   True.. MY context is for use with MPI on a 10 (eventually 20) node
   cluster that works within it's own private network. I set it up with ssh
   as a rsh replacement and that works fine, but i'm wondering how much the
   overhead really is... if it's not much i'll just keep it with ssh..


i was surprised to read from the old ssh faq...

"Across a heavily loaded Ethernet, 
rc4 encryption together with compression
may actually be faster than using rcp."

so do u think ssh with rc4 crypto and 
compression could beat rsh/rcp?
