I tried changing that and it made no difference, although it's difficult to tell what's wrong since the server is segfaulting all over the place. > Please do not ditch the :server: method, it's not always a choice at work > which method we have to use, and some of us are stuck with :server:...

If you're using rsh basically your taking a risk even having it on the servers (if your network is ever compromised, even slightly, then your rsh enabled servers will be wide open). If I can't support or test something it's just going to become a pain. The linux rsh server has apparently bitrotted for over a year now, and nobody is even interested in fixing it. I did get it working for a few hours when I wrote the server protocol, but there seems to be no way of getting it to work any more. Tony
