It's empty (private subnet, so why not?)

rexec is yes, rsh and rlogin are no. So I did the experiment: changed
rexec to "no" as well, restarted xinetd. Nope the rsh -l form
still fails. Put rexec back the way it was.
It's an odd bug, rsh works for "fred", "sally", or "root", just not
root -> fred or sally -> fred via rsh -l, when both of those
work going to Solaris.
Anybody know where the home page for rsh-server is? Maybe 0.17-13
is old and the current version (not available from Mandrake updates)
has this fixed?
