ttloop: peer died. huh?

Post by Dennis Taylo » Fri, 05 Dec 1997 04:00:00



I have been getting an odd error in my /usr/adm/syslog file, for the last
couple of days:

Dec  4 14:14:46 goliath telnetd[863]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error  
Dec  4 14:17:16 goliath telnetd[892]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error  

The message is showing up in sync in another computer as well. The two
machines are SCO OpenServer 5.02, and SCO 3.2v4.2 respectively. The
"telnetd" part of the message notwithstanding, everything seems to be
working fine.

Anyone know what causes this message?

Interesting.. I've seen the same message on a Linux 2.0.32 system.
If anyone knows what's causing it, please post it here...

I should also point out that mine doesn't have this problem when I connect
from the localhost, or even from the net.. it only occurs under certain
connections, but I'm not quite sure what's the difference...

This can happen when the client makes a very short connection, for
example, when someone is scanning ports on your host or network.

1. What is this: ttloop: peer died?

Vas is los?  I see in /usr/adm/messages:

Nov 15 05:01:49 ole telnetd[16590]: ttloop:  read: Connection reset by peer
Nov 15 06:10:47 ole telnetd[17001]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
Nov 15 07:23:13 ole telnetd[17140]: ttloop:  peer died: Invalid argument
Nov 15 07:24:56 ole telnetd[17142]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
Nov 15 07:33:40 ole telnetd[17149]: ttloop:  peer died: Invalid argument
Nov 15 08:01:59 ole telnetd[17198]: ttloop:  peer died: Invalid argument
Nov 15 09:15:48 ole telnetd[17678]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error

This appears to be folks in the office in Italy who are logging in over
the internet.   Any clues as to why they would be dying?  By the way,
it does not look like the PPP link is going down.
