The rshd - provided at openqnx - works only for PVM if PVM has been
at /openqnx/pvm3, because of an un-intended extension of the builtin
of rshd along with my test work at laaaate night
There is a new version at openqnx, which allows to specify the PVM_ROOT
at start time in inetd.conf.
It’s available at openqnx → rshd-2.gz
Fact is that the rshd from QSSL and the GNU rshd are not working with
‘Network Infrastructure Platform’ aka QNX6 … is’s really annoying.

First what is standard? There is a formal RFC that defines rlogin protocol
rfc1282. But in term of standard, you can only rely on the BSD code.
Try it on other platforms like say solaris with bash/sh as the
default shell and tell me if there are differences.
QNX6 rsh/rshd is the BSD source code. Albeit base on 4.3BSD which may show
Yes … the rshd code of the inetutil-1.3.2 distribution is BSD based.

Most of them are base on the BSD code and share the same functionnalities/bugs
But they are woking … why??
Yes I am, I offered alternative solutions to your problem.
Many thanks for your proposals … but they wasn’t applicable.
: rsh/rshd is broken … I will give Open SSH a try and will do a port of

The GNU inetutils port is the BSD code, you will find the same behaviour.
I did a plain re-compilation of 1.3.2 distribution (no single char
the executable WORKS as expected!!

PVM 3.4.4 release.
But if you ever want to take a look, I would recommand the snapshots on
Those snapshots take care of some obvious security holes, I beleive
some of the daemon were rewritten but not rshd.
Yes, I’m aware about the security wholes of rsh … for that reason I
will test at next the OpenSSH stuff.
Many thanks for your feedback!
