I am using putty to envoke a shell command from a pc to a sun
unix workstation using putty plink.
Using plink I am invoking an exe that calls a rpc service.
At this point both the rpc client and service are on the
same unix workstation.
This service in turn starts a shell command via pipes that
starts a simulation. Since the simulation can take a long time
I have set the timeout for this particular rpc service to zero so
it will return right away and allow the calling
exec to exit. This way the rpc service will monitor the simulation.
The problem I am having is that the putty plink session that I
originally started does not end even after the exec has returned.
I have to do a control-c to kill the plink session. For the exception
of the control-c to kill the plink session the rpc service and client
are working as they should. Is there a way I can "disconnect" from
the plink session without doing a control-c?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
Re: putty question
I'm not quite sure I follow all the details.
In any case, you should try redirecting stdin, stdout, stderr
command < /dev/null > /dev/null 2>/dev/null &
or something similar.
