Terminal Setting Problems ?
Please reply me directly, as at this time, I'm not
subscribed to the list.
I'm planning to do telnet connection to this Sun server that
provide a program to accessing telecommunication switch and
send commands thru it.
The problem is, whenever I tried to connect from X-Window,
though I can telnet to the Sun just fine, I always have this
strange "Error Occurred during Password/authentication
But when I try to connect from Virtual Consoles (tty1 -
tty6) it's alright. I can manage to connect till finished.
I suspect it has a thing to do with Terminal type or
settings as $TERM in VC's show linux while $TERM in
gnome-terminal, xterm, or rxvt shows xterm or rxvt terminal.
I tried to change the setting in .bashrc or by using rxvt
-tn TERMINAL_TYPE command. But it didn't work. I've also try
to change settings in gnome-terminal, such as swap
del/backspace, del genereta ^H, and others. But still
doesn't work, I kept getting the same error.
What happened here?
Can anybody give me clues?
ps: While I'm at it, how do you make client server programs
from linux to sun when you don't have compiler in the sun
machines? I tried to use expect for telnet automation, but
still feels that something is not right...
