NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     rexd - RPC-based remote execution server

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     rexd is the rpc(4)	server for remote program execution.  This daemon is
     started by	inetd(1M) whenever a remote execution request is made (see the
     note below).  For non-interactive programs, standard file descriptors are
     connected directly	to TCP connections.  Interactive programs involve
     pseudo-terminals, similar to the login sessions provided by rlogin(1C).
     This daemon may use NFS to	mount filesystems specified in the remote
     execution request.

     rexd should be used on trusted networks only.  It is not automatically
     enabled in	the /etc/inetd.conf file.  To enable rexd, edit	inetd.conf and
     remove the	comment	character preceding the	rexd entry and signal inetd to
     read the file:

	  /etc/killall -HUP inetd
