segmentation fault

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

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.

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.
