I do not recommend use of rsh. It would be better if you could remove it
from the system... although I understand that this is not always possible.

Try doing 'mak rksh' on your system. If you don't have it, then use your
favorite search engine to find out about it.

If you are using ssh, then you may find the following blurb of interest.
It was posted to the openssh-unix-dev mailing list.

| rssh is a restricted shell which allows system administrators to
| provide access to a server such that only scp or sftp can be used to
| transfer files to and from the server.  
| For more info, visit the rssh home page:

I have not used rssh myself and I am not advocating its use, I am just
trying to show you where to find the wheels that exist.

Finally, you could always ask what they are using. :-)

        Good luck,
