Issue with rlogin in zos unix

Postby mfgeta » Tue Sep 27, 2011 5:47 pm

hi folks,

i have enabled rlogin to access unix service in zos by referring to ibm manuals. as per the manual , the port 513 for rlogin is listening.
but i am unable to use rlogin using rlogin command from any zos system.
could you please clarify rlogin will work only in sysplex environment, becoz our environment is monoplex.
is there any mistakes in rlogin configuration, thats y rlogin is not working? if there is a mistake please tell me the command to find the config error.

apologies if im wrong.

You did not mention whether or not you've set up /etc/inetd.conf -- nor did you mention whether you've set up /etc/services. Both of these need to be correctly set up. Once they are there, you should be able to connect via another LPAR -- although I have not had a chance to verify this (yet). When you attempt the rlogin, what happens? Are there any console messages generated? Are there any messages generated in the TCP/IP log?
