Re: root and .rhosts file
It's a security hole (probably a simple dns spoof would gain root on
either machine. And while I'm on the topic of security here, I'd suggest
ssh instead (harder, if not impossible to spoof). But if you feel risky,
I think it is caused by the following:
bhmit1@hobbes(p1):bhmit1$ more /etc/securetty
# /etc/securetty: list of terminals on which root is allowed to login.
# See securetty(5) and login(1).
