You need to make sure that in 'ip rcmd' that you have local-username
defined to something that there is a 'username xxx' entry on the cisco for.

In other words, if you have (sorry syntax is probably not correct):

ip rcmd remote-host joebob daemon enable

you have to have a

'username joebob' entry on the cisco as well.

local-username means "apply the permissions of local-username when this rsh

and remote-username is the userid of whatever your cgi-bin runs as.. if your
web server is setuid "daemon" and cgi-bins are daemon, it will only work
if you have 'daemon' as a remote-username in the ip rcmd command.
