Thanks for the response, I managed to workaround this by using Fabien's expect scripts to call ssh that he mentioned in another mail.

It's strange that calling /bin/telnet directly from conserver works yet ssh doesn't.

One other thing I did notice was that Solaris 10 uses pty.h to compile but Solaris 11.4 used openpty, for anyone comes across this and decides to dig deeper :)

Thanks for the help Bryan and Fabien.

You’ll need to get key-based authentication working. There’s no place for ssh to ask for a password from a user (it wants to bypass stdin/stdout). 

I believe that’s the root of the problem.  How that may be different than your Solaris 10 setup is a bit of a mystery, but could that be bypassing a password prompt?  Or I’m totally misinterpreting all this and I’m totally off base. ;-)
