I am trying to get remsh working from a Hpux 11.00 env to solaris 2.8 machine via a custom script.
I can remsh between the servers, it's just when I do a remsh -n....
rcmd: connect: mysolarishost: Connection refused ...
remsh mysolarishost -n 'echo " My Command > /dev/null 2>&1" | at -s now'
Any ideas on where i should be looking ??

I tried your command using the same two OS's and it worked for me.
I think you're throwing a curve ball by mentioning -n. Consider the following 3 commands:
remsh solarishost "uname -a"
remsh solarishost -n "uname -a"
Are you really claiming that commands one and two work while command three fails? If so, this beats me.
But command one uses the rlogin service while commands two and three use the rexec service. That would imply that rexec might not be enabled on solarishost. Check your /etc/inetd.conf to be sure that in.rexecd is enabled.
Also could there be a firewall between the boxes? Could it be blocking rexec?
And I guess that I should mention that it may be a good thing that it doesn't work. The berkeley r-commands are very insecure. ssh can do all of these things in a secure manner.
