Getting the 'rwho' command to work - Mac Programming

This is as much a FreeBSD question as it is a MacOS X question: How do you get the 'rwho' command to work? I think it _should_ tell you who's logged in to all of the systems running on your IP subnet, but it always prints nothing (try it!). According to the man page (and I also looked at the Darwin source code), it relies on some files in /var/rwho: /var/rwho/whod.* information about other machines Who creates these files? Are they hand-edited, created by a script, or is there a 'whod' or other daemon I don't know about? And yes ...

    Default Getting the 'rwho' command to work

    This is as much a FreeBSD question as it is a MacOS X question:

    How do you get the 'rwho' command to work? I think it _should_ tell you
    who's logged in to all of the systems running on your IP subnet, but it
    always prints nothing (try it!).

    According to the man page (and I also looked at the Darwin source code),
    it relies on some files in /var/rwho:
    /var/rwho/whod.* information about other machines

    Who creates these files? Are they hand-edited, created by a script, or
    is there a 'whod' or other daemon I don't know about?

    And yes -- I want to find out about remote users -- running 'who' or 'w'
    doesn't help because it only tells me about local users.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    It relies on the machines on the other end running the rwho daemon
    (rwhod). It's rwhod which updates the files in /var/rwho

    If nobody's running rwhod you'll see nowt.
