If I try to run the command /usr/sbin/in.rexecd then an error appears as rexecd: getpeername: Socket operation on non-socket

rexecd is remote execution server

rexecd is supposed to be run by inetd, tcpd or xinetd daemons. You need to check which one is installed or install one. I would recommend xinetd as it allows the more flexible configuration.
