Thanks for the reply, but I am more confused now than before.
I’ve been through all of my QNX and Watcom books and I don’t see
I am using 4.25 BTW, which is most likely the problem…
Also I would really like to do this via a script, is that not possible??

I am running a custom app on an embedded QNX box.
This box has no keyboard or monitor.
It is connected to an NT box via ethernet.
I am trying to start the custom app from NT, via Telnet or
programmatically through RSH ( preferred), but it doesn’t work.
It runs but then it hangs after a bit, in telnet, if I close telnet the
app goes away too! ;(
I can autostart the app from the .profile in the home dir with the
command './APPNAME >dev/null 2> dev/null ’
It seems to me I should be able to add a ‘&’ the the command and it
should run without the telnet session, but alas it doesn’t!
Try daemonizing the application to seperate it from the shell session you
started. Either use procmgr_daemon() or do the *NIX fork();setsid();fork()

With a PC, I always felt limited by the software available.
On Unix, I am limited only by my knowledge.
