SSH Mindterm applet is delayed for few minutes accesing target device


Article ID: 225598


Updated On:


CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM)


Launching an SSH Mindterm to access a Linux target device that is not accessible (due to tcp/22 is blocked, sshd is down or the target machine is down) causes delay in subsequent SSH Mindterm access. When the first failed SSH access attempt is started "loading" message appears flashing and the a blank SSH Mindterm window appears. After this, the subsequent SSH Mindterm access to different working Linux target device will get delayed, i.e. only after about 2 or 3 minutes the expected SSH Mindterm window appears and login happens.

The 1st failed SSH Mindterm access is blocking the subsequent SSH Mindterm launch for about 2 to 3 minutes.

The expectation is, regardless of the 1st failed SSH Mindterm access, the subsequent SSH Mindterm access should launch immediately and work normally.
