Solution:1

My guess is that the file testcronfile is local. When you call remsh, it tries to open a remote testcronfile, which does not exists, hence the error message :)

You have to upload your testcronfile first.

Am I right ?

Solution:2

Have you tried getting a remote interactive shell first, then executing the crontab command? If that also fails then it points the finger at the remote machine rather than how remsh connects. If it works then check the enviroments in both cases and look for differences (certain scripts only run on interactive login, for instance).

Good luck!
