rsh-server - Servers for remote access commands (rsh, rlogin, rcp)
The rsh-server package contains a set of programs which allow users
to run commands on remote machines, login to other machines and copy
files between machines (rsh, rlogin and rcp). All three of these
commands use rhosts style authentication. This package contains the
servers needed for all of these services. It also contains a server
for rexec, an alternate method of executing remote commands.
All of these servers are run by xinetd and configured using
/etc/xinet.d/ and PAM.
The rsh-server package should be installed to enable remote access
from other machines
