using remote tape drives

Does anyone have experience using remote tape drives?  I'm trying to use a 
DLT drive on one system to back up another.  If I use tar on the second 
system, it tries to use rsh or remsh to connect to the system with the 
drive.  It seems I need to run some sort of rlogin daemon on that computer 
to allow rsh to connect.  Is there another, perhaps more secure way, of 
doing this?  I'd prefer not to run an rlogin daemon, but all of this would 
be behind a firewall in any case.
