problem with rexec
Tue May 29 08:32:00 GMT 2012
I know ssh is more secure, but I am interested in rsh/rlogin/rexec.. so i'm just trying it locally on my own few computers, just for the sake of knowing them.
rexec is working fine for me locally
$ rexec 127.0.0.1 ls
$ rexec -l user 127.0.0.1 ls
But when I try it from another machine, it crashes after prompting for the Password.
nmap from another machine shows
512/tcp open exec
MAC Address: 00:0B:11:36:25:27 (Matsushita Electric Industrial Co.)
So the port is open. and rexec can run there as I ran it locally.
But when I try
It doesn't get past the password stage.
$rexec -l user 192.168.56.42 ls
It gives no error it just waits forever after prompting for a password I until I do ctrl-c
