Hope I am not out of line here.

Would it also be worth asking if Kerberized rsh, rlogin and telnet are=20
available on these devices. As it is rsh is the least secure way to=20
pull important data from your devices/ allow access to them. Should the
standard rsh/rlogin method be encouraged, or would it be implemented with
the caution ?
