rsh is an inherently unsecure protocol. Don't use it. Don't use
the excuse that this is on a local corporate network only. You
have no idea who's sniffing on your network. Better use a secure
protocol instead, like ssh. All services provided by the OBSOLETE
rsh/rlogin/telnet interfaces are provided in a much more secure
way by ssh.
