rexd is the Sun RPC server for remote program execution. This daemon is started by inetd.8c whenever a remote execution request is made.
For noninteractive programs, the standard file descriptors are connected directly to TCP connections. Interactive programs involve pseudo-terminals, in a fashion that is similar to the login sessions provided by rlogin.1c This daemon may use NFS to mount file systems specified in the remote execution request.
If access is denied with an Authentication error, you may have to set your publickey with the chkey.1 command.
chkey.1 on.1c rlogin.1c rex.3r exports.5 inetd.conf.5 publickey.5 inetd.8c
Diagnostic messages are normally printed on the console, and returned to the requestor.
