rsh never returns to prompt - SIGTTIN

rsh never returns to prompt - SIGTTIN

Post by James Christopher Hur » Fri, 14 Jan 2000 04:00:00

I would appreciate any help on this one.

I execute a rsh to stop an informix database prior to raw backup.  The
rsh to take it down works fine, however, when I execute the following
line to restart the database - the database starts but the rsh never

# rsh HOST "su - informix -c \". /opt/informix/.profile; setsrv
INSTNAME; oninit\""

If I then use CTRL-Z and bg to put it in the background and execute jobs
- it reports Stopped (SIGTTIN).  I've tried using -n option to rsh,
redirecting /dev/null to stdin (inside the -c portion and to rsh itself)
and have run out of ideas.

1. Delay in rsh returning to prompt?

I have a 486 Linux box connected to an IBM RS/6000 by 10Base2. a command
such as "rsh walter ls" performs the ls on walter (linux) by takes about
a minute to return to the command prompt. From walter the command "rsh hs
ls" returns immediatly after performing the ls. Why? "rsh walter" drops
me into a shell with no delays and there is no delay upon exiting.
My kernel and network code is from Slackware 2.02 (kernel 1.1.54).

Thanks in advance,
