Description Nate Golnik 2004-03-22 14:06:41 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040116

Description of problem:
After the server has been running for a couple of weeks, scp from
local machine to remote server dies with Lost Connection.  There was
no network problems at that time.  Strace of the server end shows 

1590  rt_sigaction(SIGPIPE, {SIG_IGN}, NULL, 8) = 0
1590  close(6)                          = 0

Full Straces from client and server will be uploaded.  Once it gets
into this state restarting ssh doesn't fix it only a reboot seems to work.

Scp from remote server to client works with no problems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.wait till ssh gets into broken state
2.scp file to server
3. get sigpipe and local host reports Lost Connection

Actual Results:  nate@localhost nate]$ scp abuse.log
nate@servername.redhat.com's password:
abuse.log              5% |*                            |   392 KB

Expected Results:  Completion of scp.

Does it still happen? If yes, does ssh-ing to the server fail?
Could you attach log produced with scp -vvv when it fails?
Comment 4 Nate Golnik 2005-04-12 11:42:29 EDT
This problem has gone away with one of the latest updates.
Comment 5 Tomas Mraz 2005-04-12 11:50:58 EDT
OK, thanks.
