If you choose to use rlogin, make sure rlogin in enabled (uncommented and
inetd reloaded) in /etc/inetd.conf.
Since you specifically mentioned "root". You may want to look at the
rhosts(5) manual page.
(On a side note: rlogin will transfer your data and authentication
information in plain text. Depending on your network and configurations,
some other users may be able to "sniff" this traffic.)
