What version of Mathematica are you using?  Mathematica 3.0 comes with
a copy of winrsh.  Version 2.2 did not come with any such utility,
but there is a Technical Support FAQ page that tells you where you
can get them.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The use of rsh requires that the remote host have
some sort of "daemon" for handling rsh requests.  While Unix has
this feature built in, lowly Microsoft OS's do not.  I seem to
remember reading that Windows NT's resource kit (version of NT
not known) contains an rsh service that you can install.  I did
a quick lookup at MS's website, but the stuff that comes up
on the search is labeled "premium content" which means you 
have to be a part of their little "Microsoft Developer Network"
club to access it.
