Re: RSHPORTATTEMPT

Prem,

This error means that there has been an attempt to connect to this router using remote shell. (Remote shell is a program that lets users connect to systems remotely, similar to telnet). In this case, since your router is not configured as a remote shell server, the connection attempt has been denied.

This is just a warning message, but if the attempt is from an unauthorized machine, it is advisable to monitor the activities from this machine for possible security attacks.

Regards,

Anup
