enabling rsh on 6509 for catos

I have a 6509 running 8.5(5) CATOS and am wondering how to enable rsh so that I can issue CATOS commands. I have found information for the IOS but got "connection refused" response. The IOS commands I used were

username root privilege 15

ip rcmd rsh-enable

ip rcmd remote-host root 172.25.100.160 root

[dummy ~]$ rsh -l root 10.0.0.4 "show version"

10.0.0.4: Connection refused

Thanks.

Add the following lines and give it another shot:

username root password {password}

ip rcmp remote-username root

replace {password} with your password of choice.

Please rate if this helps

Hi med_ddevlin,

I implemented your suggestion, but still get connection refused.

Best regards.

Re: enabling rsh on 6509 for catos

what happens when you enter:

rsh -l root 10.0.0.4 sh ver

Does that work at all?

You are sourcing from 172.25.100.160 correct?
