No problem here. You can drop the domain\name lines. They are useless.
Try the FQDN of your machine (ibmpor47.foo.bar) and be sure the permissions
of the remote $HOME/.rhosts file are 0600.

And care for the case of the name. The name is evaluated case sensitive
so if it's all lower case on the remote machine, better change that in
your local passwd to lower case, too.
