Re: Putty (plink) causes zombie process while executing a command

command in the dos box a second time, it lists my home dir.
So, a few times the command works, but in most cases there is a zombie
Any idea why plink causes the zombie processes? How can I debug that
I'm sorry, I can't really help: when I try that, it works perfectly. At
least I guess it means that your syntax is correct.
For the record, I did it between from a Windows box to a Debian box on
the same LAN. The Windows box runs Windows XP SP2 and Debian is Sarge.
plink without arguments says I'm using release 0.58.
Do you have similar problems when you use putty itself instead of plink
to connect to the Debian box?
