Hello,

I am having problems when telneting to AIX from debian and trying to execute a command. The problem that I get is 'segmentation fault'.

I log in in the DEBIAN box and telnet the AIX as root, try to execute a command and then I get the error.

Debian lenny and AIX F80 3 5 000A4B80D700

Any ideas why?

Thanks

just to clarify the aforementioned comment.

I mean that when I telnet from a windows XP OS I can execute the command just fine.

So that means that there is something specific in the telnet client of Debian?

there has to be a major difference in the way telnet behaves in windows and in linux.

run telnet in gdb, or lift the dumped core.

After you telnet to the AIX box try issuing the command:

export TERM=ansi

and see what happens.  The only difference I can see is from Windows you termial type is set to ANSI and from Debial it set to xterm-color.
