Client Definition for Rsh Connection Method

To use Rsh, you must also configure either an .rhostsfile (in your home directory) or a /etc/hosts.equiv file on the host. This file specifies allowed hosts and users. For X Manager, add the computer name and user name of the computer running Reflection X. For X Manager for Domains, add all computers that are registered as domain nodes. The user for all domain nodes is the user of the computer running X Manager for Domains.

Only a user name, host, and command are required to connect using Rsh, and the command must start an X client.


  • The Rsh method is only available when Reflection X is running on a Windows computer.

  • Rsh is not available if you are running in FIPS mode.
