10. rsh

Rsh executes command on host and copies its standard input to the remote command, the standard output of the remote command to its standard output, and the standard error of the remote command to its standard error. Interrupt, quit and terminate signals are propagated to the remote command; rsh normally terminates when the remote command does.

When using the rsh command, you can create a link to your path using a host name as the link name. For example:

# ln -s /usr/bin/rsh HostName
# Hostname ls

HostName will be passed to rsh as the default host.

rsh allows access to the remote host without the use of a passwd. For details, See section `rcmd' in The GNU C Library Reference Manual.
