I've been advised to ask this question here:
I'm baffled by the following issue I'm currently experiencing.
I have a Debian 5.0 Linux server connected via an ethernet cable to my DSL router. My laptop is running Windows 7 and is connected wirelessly (802.11b/g) to the same DSL router. If I SSH into the server using Putty and attempt to execute a command which results in multiple lines of output my SSH session freezes. Ex.
ls -al / // Freezes ls -al / > ~/boo.txt // OK vi ~/boo.txt // OK top // Freezes
All the above commands work if I execute them directly on the server or if I change my laptop's connection to a wired connection. What gives? This problem is really baffling me! Thanks
