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?
