I understand that .rhosts files found in user's directory under /home allow remote users to issue r-commands (e.g. rcp, rlogin), targeting the system, in the context of the user who owns the file.

However, for .hosts.equiv, what user context will be given remote users executing r-commands?

  • have you read man hosts.equiv ? – X Tian Jun 4 at 10:27
