Hello, all,
Thanks to:

Manish Oberai give the solution:

   I faced the same problem . The problem is with the permissons of
"rlogin" command . The permissions should be

           -r-sr-xr-x root bin

   which is the setuid permissions for the user.

This make me wondered: is this permission set wrong originally by
solaris2.6 (I have 3 Sparc with solaris2.6 has same problem) or someone
hacked in, and changed it?

Thanks to this wonderful list!
Feng Qiu

Hello, all,
I have a few sun stations, they are on hosts.equiv each other. When I do

rlogin from normal user, it said:
rcmd: socket: Permission denied

I don't think I have this problem before. Looks like I have this problem

on solaris2.6, not solaris7.
