exit from telnet kills orbix process


I'm using a bourne shell to kick off a 3rd Pty app. This app uses Orbix. When I exit from the telnet session which started the app or hit CTRL-C at the command line, the orbix process dies, yet all other process remain.

I've tried starting the app as a background process, but it still dies regardless.

Would anyone have any ideas on this? I'd really appreciate any help. Thanks in anticipation.


I'm not sure what Orbix is? Some kind of database? Anyway, the problem is that your program is getting a hang-up signal and dying. Usually you can tell a program to ignore the hang-up by using the nohup(1) command.


nohup ./orbix <arguments>

See the nohup man page for more information.
