although this is not a real programming question perhaps anyone has any idea regarding my problem.
It's pretty weird. When I remotely connect one of our ubuntu servers per ssh the connection can be established without any problems.
I log in and enter something that produces output on the console like "ls -al". Then the connection just hangs. If I enter "ls" it shows me the output. If I enter "dmesg" session crashes too.
There's nothing in the servers log and the terminal on my side doesn't recognize the connection being closed it just hangs.
Now I wonder if this could be Firewall-Related. If there's to much output sent back it crashes.
Or maybe one of our programmers messed up something. I really don't know in which direction I can try to track this problem. Any ideas on this? I just can't understand what is happening and if it's related to network problems or system misconfiguration....I can't see why there's a difference between "ls" and "ls -al" or "dmesg". And the login produces a lot of output too on the screen but it always works.
Ok I just found out about serverfault.com and posted my question there. This can be deleted because it's off topic here. Thx anyway!
