I installed cygwin on a Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 PC on my work.
Installation is OK, but when a try to do a
rsh hostname 
I always get:
rlogin: read: Operation not permitted
I get this when I try to connect to one of the AIX machines, but also when I try to connect to my laptop.
When I do a telnet it works ok and I get for example:
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 1.5.5(0.94/3/2) (g1gpv0j) (tty0)
When I try the same from my laptop it works OK.
I tried:
- installing version 2.457.2.1
- isntalling version 2.416
-copying the working installed version from my laptop
but always the same problem.
Anyone any idea ??
Thanks in advance,
