On a RHEL5 System with
openssh-5.3p1-84.1.el6.x86_64 I defined the variable
Then I run the following:
# ssh localhost 'echo $BLA' # hello
I see that the variable
BLA is defined.
When I compile
openssh-6.2p2 from source and I use the same ssh configuration files, the variable is not defined anymore:
# ssh localhost 'echo $BLA' #
Any suggestions what I am missing?
