RSH problem

How doesn't it work?

The difference between ls, date, grep and ping is that the three first
are compiled and created for cygwin, while ping is the NT-command

Potential problem.. rsh machine ping fires up windows nt ping that
prints stuff where cygwin can't catch and forward it?

Solution.. dig up and compile ping for cygwin :-)
