Basic Information

For authentication, .rhosts files along with /etc/hosts.equiv were utilized by Rsh. Authentication was dependent on IP addresses and the Domain Name System (DNS). The ease of spoofing IP addresses, notably on the local network, was a significant vulnerability.
Moreover, it was common for the .rhosts files to be placed within the home directories of users, which were often located on Network File System (NFS) volumes.
Default port: 514
