1.5.21: inetd telnet connections: fork error
Fri May 25 10:20:00 GMT 2007
I have installed and run the cygwin inetd telnet server and find that when
more than around 16 users connect via telnet the shells start to fail with
the following message:
16622413 [main] -bash 3868 fork: child -1 - died waiting for longjmp before
initialization, retry 0, exit code 0x80, errno 11
-bash: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable
Each session starts a sh.exe, an in.telnetd.exe and one or more application
processes (though so far weÂve only loaded 2). Each or these processes takes
between 4Mb and 10Mb memory according to Windows task Manager.
We need to be able to run at least 24 telnet connections using an average of
3 application processes.
The machine weÂre using is a Xeon processor with 4Gb Ram running Windows
Can anyone help?
