telnet problem

Post by ANDY KUME » Wed, 04 Aug 1993 05:38:42

I seem to be having a problem with getting a telnet session started.
Here are the symptoms:
        1) can connect to machine, but will not get login prompt        
        2) telnetd hangs until I manually kill it, even though I quit
        the session.

I have tried both the stock in.telnetd and tcpd -- they both do the same

Any help/suggestions/comments will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

1. Increase MAXPATH problem and telnet problem

we are using sco unix 3.2  on pentium
One of the user wrote a shell program which creates dir and sub directiores.
ie he wrote a shell program which creates a directory new and a 2nd
sudirectory new inside new . this goes on infinitely  

When i went to single user mode and tried to delete it using rm -r new
it gives message rm: path too long (1023/1024)

Fsck on the filsystem fails in the second phase ie while checking Pathnames
giving a message Dir pathname too deep Increase MAXPATH & recompile
can anyone suggest how to delete the directories new.
I have already tried incresing the NINODE and NFILE parameter in kernel
parameter with no luck.

We also face a telnet problem ie suddenly users are no longer able to do
a telnet to the server but ping to the server works fine.
even telnet from the same server to itself fails.
ie suppose the server name is archie. then users suddenly arenot able to
do telnet to archie server . also telnet from archie to archie itself fails
ishort the telnet daemon dies. The problem gets rectified when i do a
tcp stop and tcp start.
Is there any permanent solution to the above problems


Thanks in advance.

Awaiting some reply at the earliest

Best Regards
