#18 closed defect (invalid)

Telnet session dies after one use.

Keywords: telnet remote access commands Cc:


I'm trying to use scripts via the 'expect" shell, to send quick annoucements via cron jobs to the telnet session. However, the session seems to die after one use. I need to be able to:

1.) Connect (I can do this once.)
2.) send a 'say' command
3.) instantly disconnect (no problem here.)
4.) 20 mins later repeat (Cannot repeat because telnet session access has crashed or busy or something.)

The server does not even shutdown properly after attempting this. It ruins telnet access and the official scripts fail and has to do a hard kill on it to stop the server.

Running CentOS 5. Everything else works perfectly.

Maybe there is a way to do this that I don't know about, but I could not find it in your guide. I cannot proceed to script events on my server until this is possible.

Do you close the connection by sending "exit"? The server does not properly handle when you disconnect by closing the client, you have to let the server close the connection.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

As the reporter does not respond and this is not related to the Linux stuff anyway I will close this as invalid.

@nikitis: If you want to ask such generic questions please do so on the official forums. Though it might be that we will have a new telnet server implementation soon anyway :D
