I wonder, what configuration tree does the combination telnet + terminal
- login uses? I have a problem when I telnet to a DiskOnChip based
system. When I telnet to this particular system all seems to be ok, only
I do not get the login prompt. It seems to me that there is some last
something missing. I should point out that when I sit in front of
this system, I do get the login prompt and all works fine. In other
words, I can login into the system through the keyboard. However, I do
not get the login prompt when I telnet to the board from another machine
(I can however telnet to itself, to the same machine).
To be specific, I have /etc/passwd, /etc/hosts, /usr/sbin/inetd,
/etc/inetd.conf, /etc/services, /usr/local/terminfo, /etc/termcap,
io-net is working properly (I have /net working, I can telnet/ftp out of
the DOC). All seems to be there (inetd is up and running), but yet the
login section can not finish its transaction. This particular board is
an Adastra board which uses devn-pcnet. Any clues? As far as I know
devn-pcnet.so does not have a bug, correct?
I should say that if I put the very same DOC in a different system (an
Ampro pc104 which uses devn-smc9000.so), then all is fine. This
indicates to me that either:
a. devn-pcnet.so has a bug? Unlikely?
b. the adastra board has a curious hardware bug? Unlikely as well.
c. am I missing some configuration file, or some other miscellaneous
thing?? Seems more likely.
Any suggestion is appreciated. Thanks.
