Summary: Clients for remote access commands (rsh, rlogin, rcp)
Description: 
The rsh 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 clients
needed for all of these services.

The rsh package might be installed to enable remote access to some
legacy network eqipment lacking encrypted access means (so make sure
you have at least considered crypto approach like openssh implements).

*** PLEASE NOTE ***

Due to the binaries installed SUID root the access to those
is limited to "netadmin" group by default; use control(8)
when amending accordinging to the site policy.
