We are running AIX 3.1.5, with the default TCP/IP settings, on
A PC talks to the telnet daemon on the RS6000. If the PC crashes,
then the session stays logged in on the RS6000, and the
socket state ( netstat ) remains in the ESTABLISHED state
for a long time. What has to be done to reconfigure
TCP/IP to time sockets out more quickly ?
The only other alternatives that we have are:
1. Write a daemon that will spot the PC rebooting and then
kill off any processes with connections to the PC on the
2. Recompile the telnet daemon - anybody know where to get
the IBM source code for telnetd ? - with appropriate timeouts
in the header files
Any other ideas/experiences will be very gratefully received.
