Forking SSH via Apacheby packetstormer (Monk)
|on Feb 11, 2014 at 13:59 UTC||Need Help??|
packetstormer has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have been looking at this for too long, hopefully someone can spot what is going on!
I have an inhouse system where I need to have users click a link and start a reverse SSH tunnel. The script itself is simple and works. Running it from shell and it connects with no STDOUT. However, when I try to fork it from a web page the page hangs (like it would if I wasn't forking) and stays there forever. The process starts fine, but the page doesn't redirect.
If I run this from the command line passing in the port the command executes. However, from the webpage, although the command does execute, the page stays there and doesn't redirect.
Any advise would be great!
