Example of a .rhosts file

These are the contents of a .rhosts file for the user "helper" on the host known as "pollux".

    quinine.ucs.ed.ac.uk  helper
    castle.ed.ac.uk       helper
    festival.ed.ac.uk     helper
    cancer.ucs.ed.ac.uk   helper

This allows the user helper to use the rcp (remote copy) command to copy files between their account on pollux and their accounts on these other hosts.
