[TriLUG] rlogin on Red Hat 7.1?

> In any event I'm trying to get it working on a Red Hat 7.1 box. I've installed xinetd, and rsh-server and enabled rexec, rlogin and rsh in xinetd.d. For good measure I installed telnet-server and enabled the echo and telnet services for testing. And I signaled xinetd to re-read its configuration.
> The echo and telnet services work fine so xinetd appears to be working okay. Attempts to rlogin to this box just get a "Connection refused".

your mail client's word wrap settings ;) heh j/k
1) so what's xinet.d/rlogin contain *exactly*?
(disable = yes would be bad :)
2) go ahead and stop/start xinetd just to make sure it's *really*
reading new config
3) netstat -na|grep 513|grep LISTEN and see if something's listening
Side note: Any particular task you're trying to perform, esp. one where
we could help you migrate towards an ssh-based or similar
approach? Ignore only if this is a truly isolated network :)
