Re: Help with break command

Well I've discovered one thing, using conserver I can get the system to
halt by sending ^Ecl0 at the login prompt, but if I log in it fails and
spits out strange characters and ignores the sequence. It looks like the
shell is intercepting conserver's break sequence and munging it up.

I hope that that isn't the expected behaviour.

I have disabled conserver and connected to the box directly with telnet
through the terminal server, and sending a break works just fine whether
I'm at the login prompt or logged in.

FWIW the terminal type on the remote host is set to vt100 and the shell is
either borne or korn.
