The messages you are receiving ("No Remote Directory.", "Permission denied.")
point out a problem with the user's HOME directory.
It would be better if you specify the steps you used for testing:
- Did you create /etc/passwd and /etc/group on the server;
- Are they local users or domain users;
- Have you tried rlogin?
- Do you get the server's welcome message and prompt for a passwd (if not then
check `which rsh` you are using -- Windows has it's own rsh command).
