Use "which rsh" to see what binary each is running.  Your workstation
install might be using the kerberos version.  Here is what Centos 5
has to say:

$ which rsh
$ rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/kerberos/bin/rsh
$ rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/bin/rsh

Notice that the kerberos version is first in the path.
