Well, my setup is kind of secure. We have one machine connected to the internet (behind my Uni's firewall). Behind this machine is a cluster of 6 identical computer nodes.
I already have passwordless login using SSH/RSA, but I'm trying to get Chromium+DMX (google it, pretty much first links) to work, and I need rsh in order to use some python scripts that come built in.

My knowledge of python is pretty much null, so I don't know how to alter the script to use SSH (which actually be a much better solution to my problem).
