ISDN Router and Crontab
1st -Sorry for my english :-)
2nd - I've a FreeBSD 4.9 connetcted to internet with an ISDN router.
If I type as root the following commad:
#getmail --getmaildir /home/maildir/.getmail
I get what I want; the ISDN router start the
dial procedure to the ISP and I get my email from
the remoter pop3 server.
But if I place the same command line in a cronjob,
the router remain in a "sleep" state.
So, just to check I've make a script "tst.sh" containing the following lines:
echo "Start for mail chk..." >/dev/console
/usr/local/bin/getmail --getmaildir /home/mailer/.getmail
echo "Mail chk done!" >/dev/console
As well as mentioned before, if I manually run the "tst.sh" I guess the
target, but if the same scrip is executed fron crontab, I get only the two
echo messages; the getmail process does not appear as executed and the ISDN
router remain in a "staedy" state.
What I can do? May someone suggest to me some helpful info?
Thank you in advance!
