Description

This article is from the Windows NT Internet FAQ, by sscoggin@enet.net (Steve Scoggins) with numerous contributions by others.

5B-3: Where can I find a rsh for Windows NT to use with a UNIX host?

William Cheung (wcheung@ee.ubc.ca) has developed a program called
WinRSH/WinRSH32 - Remote Shell for Windows 1.6

This is an eighth release of WinRSH - Remote Shell for Windows

The following details what are fixed/improved in this version:

WinRSH 1.6:

1. Added a message bar to display messages internal to WinRSH.

2. Fixed occasional screen garbling bugs.

3. Disconnection from the remote host is now more responsive.

4. Fixed a bug in not able to check the "Log to File" menu once it
is unchecked.

5. The source code is now distributed as part of WinRSH in the SRC
directory under the GNU licenses and agreements.

For those who don't know what WinRSH is...

WinRSH contains a very simple user interface to allow a Window's
user to run a program remotely on your workstation using either the
RSH daemon or the REXEC daemon. The results of the remote execution
are then displayed in a scrollable window.

The following is an excerpt from readme.txt included in the
distribution.
