I know that on Solaris a /dev/urandom device is provided by the SKI packages.
There may be an equivalent under the HPUX environment but I am not sure, I am
not very far up the HPUX guru ladder.
You might like to consider using OpenSSH if you don't have any joy with ssh.
OpenSSH can be compiled without a /dev/*random device by using egd, the
Entropy Gathering Daemon. OpenSSH also requires installation of zlib and
openssl though (which is just a bit more effort, but oh well). I've not used
egd so can't comment on it, but it's probably worth a go.
Or you could just fall back on rsh. =)
