Re: rlogin or rsh correct install

You answer this question by consulting <>.  Type
in the name of the file you're looking for.  It will tell you the package(s)
and version(s) that contain this file.  For executables, it's often helpful
to proceed the executable name with 'bin/' (i.e. 'bin/rlogin').  With the 
results of that, run 'setup' and install that package.  Simple. :-)

You're using the Windows version of 'rsh'. ;-)  

You may want to consider installing and using 'openssh' instead, if security
is an issue.  It's a secure replacement for r* commands.
