Passing Suspend and Resume signals to rsh

Posted on 1998-04-01

I have a program that uses rsh to create a process on another machine.  I can send signals to the process, but I cannot send the SIGSTOP and SIGCONT, (suspend and resume) signals because apparently rsh does not support these signals.  Is there any code (other than rexec), that can do such a thing.  How hard would it be to re-write rsh to propogate these signals through?  Basically, using rexec is a security problem and also, I do not want to run my program as root to use the rcmd directly (which passes the signals).  Any ideas?

Thanks,
Shawn

Have you looked at telnet. Some signals can certainly be sent.
