I have a korn shell script on a HP UNIX box. This script tries to FTP (GET) files from various other boxes. So basically ...
a. It connects to a system
b. GETs the file
c. Closes the connection
d. does other stuff ... which I dont think is important here.
Steps a-d are repeated several times.
Everytime an FTP connection is established, " ident/tcp: Died on signal 13" error is recorded in the syslog.
When I do this manually though, from a command prompt it works fine. No error in the syslog.
I thought this could be a congestion problem and tried using "sleep 120" between calls. But that didnt work. Same error was recorded in the syslog.
Can anyone help me fix this problem. My SA gets paged everytime I run this from the CRON and he isn't exactly happy.:-(
