Re: File transfer in network
Thanks for your replies to my file transfer query. Basically, I want to transfer files between 2 systems through a program, which means I do not want to use ftp or Telnet or the rlogin command. That is why I am looking for a system command. I tried the following methods.
1. rpc test.c root@xxxxxxxxxxxx:test1.c
It tried various 'ways' (krb5, ...) and finally reported "Connection refused" or "Permission denied". I read the man pages of 'rcp' and learnt that there must exist a file called .k5login (or some such name) which must contain the names of those systems/users permitted to use rcp. Can you please guide me how to specify those, as it still does not work.
2. I included a mount point for each system in the other system's fstab file. For example, I am at workstation1 (linuxws1) and its fstab has the entry
linuxws2.kal:/usr /mnt/linuxws2 nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192 0 0
When I try using the cp command, I get an error "RPC ... error = Connection refused".
Is this also due to authentication failure? What should I do? Why does it occur even though I had logged in as root? Being the root, how can I bypass the authentication mechanism?
