telnetd timing out?
This isn't powerpc specific but I perhaps someone knows where I might
be able to look to fix a property of (probably) telnetd:
It closes my connections after a long period of inactivity.
I have another box running Debian-i386 and I can leave telnet running
it all day - not touching a key - and the telnet connection stays
up. But when I telnet into my ppc box and do not use the connection
for a few hours the connection is automatically closed.
Is it possible another deamon is sweeping the system or something
looking for idle connections (this is a via an ethernet
connection/local LAN/not ppp)? I looked at /etc/inetd.conf at the
telnetd line but it's normal (no flags with telnetd).
One more thing, I'm using dselect now on the PPC machine and it just
tried to install gom-ct; this always throws my machine into a stall.
I got out of it by killing the process and hitting ctrl-c at the
menu. This is really a report.
