Virtual Terminal under ssh

Hello,

I am hoping some one can enlighten me as to whether it is possible to have a virtual terminal when connecting to a vms server via SSH (HP TCP/IP services).

The documentation only seems to mention telnet and rlogin in reference to virtual terminals

thanks,

Bert

Re: Virtual Terminal under ssh

AFAIK, not supported. There is no "connector" between the end-point of the tunnel and the virtual terminal processing that can tell which incoming connection should end up "where". ssh just isn't as integrated as we'd all like here...

The usual approach is to connect into a box using mincom or screen, tmux or such, or one of the commercial console-management packages from TDI or elsewhere, and work from there.

Bert,

You could SSH to the system, then immediately telnet to the same system. This would give you a virtual terminal between the SSH session and the "real" session. Reconnecting do the same thing, SSH in, then telnet to reconnect to the VT.

Some of it could be automated in LOGIN.COM by recognising the SSH connection.

Hello Guys,

Thanks Hoff, I was kind of expecting it not to be supported.

Thanks John, this looks like the work around that I will have to use.

cheers,

Bert
