– RCP copies files to and from computers running the RCP
service. RCP uses the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) to
utilize the connected and reliable delivery of data between
the client and the host. RCP can be scripted in a batch file
and does not require a password. The remote host must be
running the RSHD service, and the users username must be
configured in the remote hosts .rhosts file. RCP is one of
the r-commands available on all UNIX systems.

Microsofts implementation of TCP/IP includes the RCP
client software but not rshd services.
