If shell metacharacters need to be interpreted on the remote machine, enclose them in quotes. This command is sometimes called remsh . See also ssh .


-l user

Connect to host with a login name of user .


Divert input to /dev/null . Sometimes useful when piping rsh to a command that reads standard input but that might terminate before rsh .
