The responses received on my query on how to prevent echoing of the
password on an rsh'ed sudo command gave the following solutions:
- Use "ssh" (Secure shell package)
- rsh an xterm and run the desired sudo command inside of it
- Do an stty -echo before running the sudo command.
Note that when your rsh a command, the command does not have a
tty associated with it. If you run an xterm, this does provide
a terminal environment.
If one does
rsh remotehost tty
the output will say "not a tty"
Thanks to all those who responded
