An explanation for this is that rlogin/rsh use port 513 while rexec works on 
port 512. It is therefore possible, that rsh/rlogin and rexec work with 
different configurations.

I suppose that your inet-deamon listens on all interfaces for rlogin/rsh, but 
only on your public 100Mbit interface for rexec. 
You can check this via

netstat -tulpen | grep ":512"

This will give you the address range from which your rexecd will accept 
connections from. If this doesn't match* then you'll have to check 
your rexecds configuration.
