 rcp connection refused
I have a problem with rcp.  Two machines on the network, call them alpha and
beta. On alpha the .rhosts (permissions 600) file contains beta and on beta
the .rhosts (permissions 600) file contains alpha.  The same is true for
/etc/hosts.equiv.  The .netrc files contains valid entries for root.  I can
rcp from beta to alpha without a problem.  However, when I try to rcp from
alpha to beta, I get a thirty second pause then the message
" Connection refused"  What am I doing wrong?

rcp does not use .netrc - so we can ignore that bit

If you are trying to copy as root user the file /etc/hosts.equiv is also

The permissions for .rhosts & /etc/hosts.equiv on beta must have permissions
that allow only the owner to write to the file - so 600 is fine - maybe just
check the owner.

Have you got the os network security feature enabled? - If so this may be
affecting your connection - Check on securetcpip command and tcbk commands and
the /etc/security/config file.

I was plagued with this also install ssh and debug using ssh -v. rcp will
work then also.

a lot more money writing for Windows I tell them "yea, well, I could make
even more money selling crack or robbing banks, but one must maintain a
certain level of dignity"         (Kenneth C.{*filter*},
