Yes, I checked it. It has proper permissions.

Well, I used hostname only. I just posted problem with IP Address for
avoiding any confusion. Both machine are well connected and I able to ping

Oops, I forgot. Thanks for reminding.
I am able to rcp on the same machine from same machine i.e. "rcp
/my_file.txt knuth:/home/mohanlal/temp" works very well. In
/home/mohanlal/.rhosts of knuth, I have given permission to knuth (the linux
machine) and mohanlal (windows machine running cygwin). But from machine
mohanlal "rcp.exe some_file knuth:/home/mohanlal/temp" doesn't work.
Any other clue?
