rsh - remote shell
rsh [-n] [-l username] host [command]
host [-n] [-l username] [command]
Rsh connects to the specified host, and executes the specified command.
Rsh 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.
The remote username used is the same as your local username, unless you
specify a different remote name with the -l option. This remote name
must be equivalent (in the sense of rlogin(1)) to the originating
account; no provision is made for specifying a password with a command.
If you omit command, then instead of executing a single command, you will
be logged in on the remote host using rlogin(1).
Shell metacharacters which are not quoted are interpreted on local
machine, while quoted metacharacters are interpreted on the remote
machine. Thus the command
rsh otherhost cat remotefile >> localfile
appends the remote file remotefile to the localfile localfile, while
rsh otherhost cat remotefile ">>" otherremotefile
appends remotefile to otherremotefile.
Specify the remote user name.
-n Connect standard input of the remote command to /dev/null. Do this
if rsh should not inadvertently read from standard input.
rcp(1), rlogin(1), rhosts(5).
You cannot run an interactive command (like rogue(6) or vi(1)); use
