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.
If this is a SCO box, see http://wdb1.sco.com/kb/showta?taid=112062 (fixed by rs506a).
But if this is telnet being slow to issue the login prompt, see
Telnet/FTP is very slow to connect (any OS, including Linux).
That's a DNS issue. Otherwise..
If not, and it is SCO, the problem here is that the /etc/auth/ttys file gets screwed
up. You'll find a /etc/auth/ttys-t file. Don't remove it; just run
"tcbck". The TA above just shows you how to write a script to check
for a ttys-t file every 5 minutes and run tcbck if it finds it.
