rlogin fails as root on ISC 386/ix

is there anybody out there and not yet on holidays?
I have trouble with rlogging in on another machine
if I try to do this as root.
Both machines run 386/ix ver.2.02 . The /etc/hosts.equiv
files have the other machines in there and on each machine
there is the file /.rhosts with the corresponding line
otherhost root
in it. 
I get the error message "Not on system console ..."
if I do
machine1>  rlogin machine2
as root.
Yes, I have removed the line
CONSOLE= ... something ...
in the /etc/default/login  file on both machines.

Please help, and soon if possible.

Thanks a lot

Fritz Zaucker
