SCO Unix, Xenix and ODT General FAQ

This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

How can I tell if a user logged in locally, used rlogin, telnet or ssh?

You can use the concept here to back trace any process. This script will find the first ancestor process after init. This would be sshd or telnet or just a getty, etc.


   MYPROC=$$
   NEXTPROC=$MYPROC
   while [ $NEXTPROC != 1 ]
   do
   MYPROC=$NEXTPROC
   NEXTPROC=`ps -p $MYPROC -o "ppid=" `
   done
   ps -p $MYPROC -o args=
 

Fabio Gianotti observed:

Not to be picky, but on my system, the above script returns "/etc/inetd" if
you've used either telnet or rlogin , so I changed it slightly:

   echo $0 `tty` `id`
   INETPROC=`cat /etc/inetd.pid`
   MYPROC=$$
   NEXTPROC=$MYPROC
   while [ $NEXTPROC != 1 -a $NEXTPROC != $INETPROC ]
   do
   MYPROC=$NEXTPROC
   NEXTPROC=`ps -p $MYPROC -o "ppid=" `
   done
   ps -p $MYPROC -o args=

Yeah, it's obsolete, clunky, insecure and broken, but people still use this stuff (Tony Lawrence)
