rshd [options]

TCP/IP command. Remote shell server for programs such as rcmd and rcp, which need to execute a noninteractive shell on remote machines. rshd is started by inetd and must have an entry in inetd's configuration file, /etc/inetd.conf.

All options are exactly the same as those in rlogind, except for -L, which is unique to rshd.
