Description Derek Tattersall 2001-01-23 14:06:17 UTC
Transcript of session:
[dlt@sundown dlt]$ ssh test90.test -l dlt ls
dlt@test90.test's password: 
[dlt@sundown dlt]$

The same thing works with rsh.

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-01-23 17:44:07 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-01-23 18:08:10 UTC
Does this also happen using the "user@hostname" variation?  When you use a
command like "touch /tmp/foo", does the file get created?

Comment 3 Derek Tattersall 2001-01-23 18:21:21 UTC
Yes, happens with either way of specifying the user and host.  It appears that
the file foo gets created, so the command gets executed but the output never
comes back.
