[Dirvish] Does Windows rsync work with Dirvish?

I've been trying to play with the rsync command and --rsh=rsh, (just among
Linux servers to keep things simple at first) but I've had no luck at all.

I can't even successfully do a rsh <hostname> to talk to another server. I'm
running SlackWare Linux 11 on most of my servers. Do I have to set-up some
sort of rsh.conf file somewhere? Do I have to open a port by un-commenting a
line in my /etc/inetd.conf file?

If you can afford the lack of encryption (and given that you run Samba now,
you can) you should be able to run standard dirvish as it comes out of the
box, by using rsh instead of ssh for transport. The cygwin rsh daemon worked
fine for me, as long as Vista doesn't enter the picture.
