Processes Running on Server

I use the X-Start program to access UNIX servers. Within this program I use the telnet with dtterm option to connect. I connect to the servers with no problem. Once I exit the session, I go back to the server and there is a -ksh process still running associated to the last login. I do not exit the X-start program, I always have it running. Most of the time I leave my computer logged in with at least one real session active. How can these jobs get killed without having to do it manually? This gives a false sense that someone is still logged into the box and eventually I could have 5 - 10 empty sessions appear. Any help would be appreciated.

In this example, only pts/6 and pts/3 are really active.

surban pts/3 Apr 10 11:20 (
surban pts/5 Apr 10 15:57 (
surban pts/7 Apr 10 15:57 (
surban pts/6 Apr 10 11:20 (

surban 15266 15260 0 11:20:50 pts/3 0:01 /usr/dt/bin/dtterm -ls -display
surban 15260 15258 0 11:20:49 pts/3 0:00 -ksh
surban 15373 15371 0 15:57:28 pts/7 0:00 -ksh
surban 15268 15266 0 11:20:50 pts/6 0:00 -ksh
surban 15353 15351 0 15:57:17 pts/5 0:00 -ksh

Seems the only way to end them is to stop the X-Manager that is currently running. Should close out all connections when the last window is closed to that server.

Use timeout feature in the advanced option of telnet

You can terminate telnet connections after successfully running a remote X application. Please set the value of "Xstart->Advanced->Timeout" to 20 ~ 60 seconds. The value "0" means that the telnet session is not terminated until Xmanager closes.

Some X applications that generate output messages might be terminated if the telnet shell is not running. However most xterm-like applications don't have a problem even if the telnet shell is terminated.
