ssh command on remote linux system hanging

Hi,
Our systems:
system1: amd 64 running suse linux 9 enterprize
system2: amd 64 running esx vmware 3 with suse linux 9 enterprize.


The problem is:
when we ssh into system2 and execute the command:
ls -al
the session hangs. Infact session hangs when we execute any command returning multiple rows (by pressing the ctrl y we are able to come out of the hang, but no result).

Similar problem occur when running:
ssh system2 "ls -al /opt/oracle"

,but if we run the following:

ssh system2 "ls /opt/oracle" the output is ok it's also ok if you are on
system2 and execute: ls



All suggestions will be most appreciated.

Thanks.

run ssh command with -vv flag to see more verbose sessions, and also try -t and -T options, they are for pseudo-tty allocation.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply running the command:
~> ssh -vv mirror "ls -al"

if I run with -t then then session hangs.

That's strange......
I ran the same command, and here's what you miss after the hang :

I have the same openssh versions as you, but I'm not sure why you cannot complete the command, I can't find anything suspicious in your debug log, besides I'm using password as authentication method, and you are using ssh keys. You can try different machine, thus determine whether the problem is in the server, or the client machine.
