Re: Bell & ssh

Do you want to let the remote machine beep or the local one?

on a remote host

Does local beep work on your working machine from a terminal or console?

I want the remote box to beep. I want to understand where the difference is since the echo command executes on the remote machine regardless. How does ssh turn the bell off?

If a script is run via the console on a box, it beeps. Running the exact same script via an ssh session into that box doesn't beep. I want to use the noise to wake up the person next to the remote box.
