My original question was:

------------------------ INCLUDE -----------------------------
I have 2 machines running SunOS 4.1.4. (Host A, Host B)
Both machines running tcp-wrappers.

When I try to rdump from B to A I get the following message:
mail# rdump 0ucdsf 27000 36000 ns1:/dev/nrst0 /dev/sd0a
DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Tue Feb 10 10:16:54 1998
DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch
DUMP: Dumping /dev/rsd0a (/) to /dev/nrst0 on host ns1
DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories]
DUMP: estimated 9896 blocks (4.83MB) on 0.00 tape(s).
DUMP: Protocol to remote tape server botched (in rmtgets).
rdump: Lost connection to remote host.
DUMP: Bad return code from dump: 1
I have fixed the .rhosts file and I allow in.rshd from B to A
through tcp-wrappers program.

Thanks in advance

There was a terminal setting : stty ...
