because I add "rsh" to /etc/securtty. I don't think it's not a good
So, I use "rdist -P ssh -f Dist_file" it works after I enter the root
Wondering is there a way to distribute a file to all my clients
without entering password? or specify the root password somewhere? I
just too lazy entering password all the time..
If there are many ways, what is the most secure way?
Thank you all so much..

Re: rdist + rlogin + ssh
Plenty. You can restrict the file transfers to specific IP addresses and/or
specific directories with the "rsync" service, by either running the rsync
daemon on the targets and pushing to them, or running the rsync daemon on
your server and letting them pull files. Alternatively, you can use
"ssh-agent" to store an SSH key and use that with authorized_)keys to push
the files without having to type passwords for SSH.
"It depends". Take a look at the man pages for rsync and for ssh-agent, and
take a look at the linux security cookbook from O'Reilly.
