rcp rcmd

You also need to realize that any names you put in .rhosts or hosts.equiv have to match what the system sees. Check by pinging the ip of the other site to see how it is resolved.

Does running  'rcmd hostname who'  work ?
If so then does  'rcmd hostname "cat file" >file'  work ?
If so then you should be able to use something like:
  rcmd hostname "find files -print | cpio -oC 1024" | cpio -ivumdC 1024

If none of the above work then go back to the TA but also repeat the 
chmod commands for /usr/bin/rcp and /usr/bin/rcmd.  In particular
  # chown root:bin /usr/bin/rlogin /usr/bin/rcmd /usr/bin/rcp
  # chmod 4711 /usr/bin/rlogin /usr/bin/rcmd /usr/bin/rcp
