Suppose you have a collection server barby and a client server ken.

The file /.rhosts on barby contains the entry:

ken root

On barby, mkdir /usr/local/var/orca/orcallator/ken

Create a file on ken in /usr/local/bin called pushorca.rdist which reads:

HOSTS = (root at barby)
FILES = (/usr/local/var/orca/orcallator/ken/*)
(${FILES}) -> (${HOSTS})

create a crontab entry for root on ken that reads

34 6-18 * * 1-5 /usr/bin/rdist -f /usr/local/bin/pushorca.rdist > /dev/null

(note that's Monday to friday 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. once per hours at 34 minutes
after - you may need/want to update  more often depending upon what your
collection server can handle).
