I'm spanish and my english is not very good. I'm development a soft that connect with router cisco with rsh. And i have to send rsh commands but i can't. From my Linux shell command a request rsh:

rsh cisco-rsh

cisco-rsh is a user that has privileges.

A configuration of my FastEthernet0/0 on my router(cisco 2600) is:

no ip rcmd domain-lookup

ip rcmd rcp-enable

ip rsh-enable

ip rcmd remote-host cisco-rsh cisco-rsh enable

ip rcdm remote-username cisco-rsh

ip rcmd source-interface FastEthernet0/0

Then what is my problem? only can use rsh because my teacher is required.

To enable the Cisco IOS software to receive incoming remote shell (rsh) protocol and remote copy (rcp) protocol requests, customers must configure an authentication database to control access to the router. This configuration is accomplished by using the ip rcmd remote-host command.
