So I've noticed.  I apears to try to run ksh and klogin first.  There
doesn't seem to be any way to turn it off.

Could you elaborate on this PAM stuff, I don't see any reference to it in
the rsh man pages either.

If I could I would, but I can not.  The old UNIX box that the tape drive
is on does not support SSH.  I _need_ the old style rsh.  I know all about

I just want to make rsh work like it used to.
