"remsh"! Are you on HP-UX? Cause I don't have a remsh - I have an rsh.

I believe you can get a "connection refused" error if you have a 
password authentication problem. Have you tried rlogin or rsh without a 
command? If it prompts you for a password then an rsh <machine> 
<command> will not work.
