With ssh:
Put the following line in your ~/GNUstep/Library/Afterstep/wharf
*Wharf ascpu-Server - Swallow "ascpu" ssh -f <server> /bin/ascpu

Change the path from /bin/ascpu to the correct path for your
server. <server> must of course be swapped with the name of your server.

To use rlogin instead, you will have to find out how to execute remote 
commands with it. I have never used rlogin (I never send my passwords
unencrypted over a network unless I _really_ have to), so I cannot
help you with that. 'man rlogin' whould probably be a good place to start.
