Description niles 1999-04-13 19:46:37 UTC
I just instaled a fresh version of 5.9 and I can't telnet, ftp or rlogin to the machine remotely. I always get "out of ptys" or "All network ports in use". This is probably related to the UNIX98 pty support in the 2.2.x kernel. What's the work around?
Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-04-13 20:58:59 UTC
Make sure you are mounting /dev/pts (put this in fstab): none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
Comment 2 niles 1999-04-13 21:38:59 UTC
That's it! Thanks. Why wasn't this already in my /etc/fstab? That seems like a bug. oh well, perhaps something with wrong with my install. It's working now. Why can't a post this comment without "Reopen bug" getting set? (I can't un-select it in Netscape, Bugzilla bug?)

*** Bug 2248 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** This problem is present in the latest release of RawHide, both in the i386 and sparc architectures. When you try to telnet or ftp into the machine with the problem, the client program respond with the message no network ports available. While in X windows, when trying to open an xterm a "no pty available" message pops in the console. ------- Additional Comments From getnito 04/18/99 04:59 ------- Already solved in bug 2169! The problem is solved by adding an entry for /dev/pty on /etc/fstab: none /dev/pts devpts mode=0622,gid=5 0 0 This is either a bug or a security feature in rawhide, but I thinks it is probably a bug since it even prevent you from opening xterms in X windows.

*** Bug 2243 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** My default starbuck installation will not run xterm or rxvt at all. Rxvt just chokes and dies, and xterm exits with the message: xterm: no available ptys Xiterm, on the other hand, works fine.
