Re: problem with rexec

That helped.  In summary, as pointed by Lothar, for proper operation
of rexecd the hostname of the connecting host should be known to the
server through any means like DNS lookup, /etc/hosts etc.

Ok. The problem is, that your rexecd doesn't know the hostname that belongs
your private address. And rexecd needs a hostname to operate properly.

Add an dns-entry into the servers /etc/hosts for your private address, and
everything should work fine.
