Why does rsh still work?
On my Debian 3 sparc machine there is no rshd running and there is no shell
or login entry in /etc/inetd.conf. There is an sshd process. I am still
able to rsh in from a Debian 3 i386 machine. From a RH6.1 I get connection
refused when I try to rsh to the Debian 3 sparc machine.
On the Rh6.1 machine in /etc/inetd.conf I commented out the shell and login
entries and restarted inetd. The Rh6.1 machine has SSH2 sshd running. I can
still rsh into the RH machine from the Debian 3 i386.
Is it possible that OpenSSH and SSH2 both handle rsh logins?
My attempts at STFW have not yielded a direct answer...yet.
