                         **** CAUTION ****
For security reasons, the use of the r-command is completely discouraged.
Instead, you should seriously consider use of the ssh related tools.
This package is mainly intended for compatibility.

The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* rsh-0.17-3
* rsh-server-0.17-3

This is probably the final release of rsh package for cygwin because the
r-commands are outdated and removed from some Linux and BSD distributions
such as RedHat Enterprise Linux 8 for security reasons.

The rsh-server package contains a set of programs which allow users to
run commmands on remote machines, login to other machines and copy files
between machines (rsh, rlogin and rcp). All three of these commands use
rhosts style authentication. This package contains the servers needed
for all of these services. It also contains a server for rexec, an
alternate method of executing remote commands. All of these servers must
be run by a 'super-server' such as inetd or xinetd, and as such are
configured by /etc/inetd.conf or /etc/xinetd.d/* -- the servers can not
be launched standalone nor via cygrunsrv.

Change History

---------- rsh-0.17-3 -- 2021 Feb 6 -----------
* Introduced some new patches from fedora
* Added IPv6 support to rexec and rcp
