        I believe that bach would be the username that you would use on  Note the test command:

rsh -l bach 'echo $PATH'

        You probably should not learn rsh from a CVS manual.  Read the rsh 
manual page on the system to which you will be connecting.

        Better yet, visit and read up on ssh, 
which is a more secure and less problematic remote connection method.  Of 
course, you may not be able to use this, but if you can, it is the better way 
to fly.
