Question mac 10.4>terminal>linux remote server>ssh login accepted>session closed-why?

mac 10.4>terminal>linux remote server>ssh login accepted>session closed-why?

AHHHH!!

I have been connecting to the server with the line: ssh userid@website.com

The remote server accepts my password; logs me in with ssh; posts a lovely welcome message AND closes the session. Is this a "term setting" issue?


Can I change this from my computer? The que at my web host requires a long wait. The techs seem to limit their answers to "yes, no or I'll pass it on to administrator"

Thanks

RLOGIND(8)						      System Manager's Manual							RLOGIND(8)

NAME
rlogind, in.rld - remote login server SYNOPSIS
login stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/in.rld in.rld tcpd login /usr/sbin/in.rld DESCRIPTION
Rlogind is the server for the rlogin(1) program. The server provides a remote login facility with authentication based on privileged port numbers from trusted hosts. Rlogind listens for service requests at the port indicated in the ``login'' service specification; see services(5). When a service request is received the following protocol is initiated: 1) The server checks the client's source port. If the port is not in the range 0-1023, the server aborts the connection. 2) The server checks the client's source address and requests the corresponding host name (see gethostbyaddr(3), hosts(5) and named(8)). If the hostname cannot be determined, the dot-notation representation of the host address is used. Once the source port and address have been checked, rlogind allocates a pseudo terminal (see tty(4)), and manipulates file descriptors so that the slave half of the pseudo terminal becomes the stdin , stdout , and stderr for a login process. The login process is an instance of the login(1) program, invoked with the -r option. The login process then proceeds with the authentication process as described in rshd(8), but if automatic authentication fails, it reprompts the user to login as one finds on a standard terminal line. The parent of the login process manipulates the master side of the pseduo terminal, operating as an intermediary between the login process and the client instance of the rlogin program. In normal operation, the packet protocol described in tty(4) is invoked to provide ^S/^Q type facilities and propagate interrupt signals to the remote programs. The login process propagates the client terminal's baud rate and terminal type, as found in the environment variable, ``TERM''; see environ(7). The screen or window size of the terminal is requested from the client, and window size changes from the client are propagated to the pseudo terminal. SEE ALSO
rlogin(1). DIAGNOSTICS
All diagnostic messages are returned on the connection associated with the stderr, after which any network connections are closed. An error is indicated by a leading byte with a value of 1. ``Try again.'' A fork by the server failed. ``/bin/sh: ...'' The user's login shell could not be started. BUGS
The authentication procedure used here assumes the integrity of each client machine and the connecting medium. This is insecure, but is useful in an ``open'' environment. A facility to allow all data exchanges to be encrypted should be present. A more extensible protocol should be used. 4.2 Berkeley Distribution May 24, 1986 RLOGIND(8)
