RSH Permission Denied

Hello colleagues,

I am trying to set up rsh on one of my routers in order for a user on another router to execute certain 'show' commands. I keep getting a Permission Denied message, and I think I am missing something basic here. I want a user on router1 to execute commands on router2. This is what my config looks like:

router2

ip rcmd rsh-enable

ip rcmd remote-host router2 172.16.12.1 (this is the IP address of router1) user enable 15

This is what I execute on router1:

router1

rsh router2 /user user sh run

This is when I get the error message saying Permission Denied. I think I am missing the concept. Can anybody tell me what the config of both routers should look like in order for router1 to execute commands on router2 ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

Georg
