Command output redirection > doesn't print to file


I've used Linux for a while but am stumped. I just installed stun and ran the following:

david@smurf > stunc stun.stunprotocol.org -b > res
assign_socket: local socket is bound to 0.0.0.0:48157
stunc_bind_cb: stun_discovery_done
stunc_bind_cb: local address NATed as 13.135.7.82:48157
david@smurf > more res
david@smurf >

i.e. nothing got written to 'res' but continued to be output to screen.

What do I need to do to get access to the output? (I need it for a script I'm putting together).

Thanks,

David

(Ubuntu 12.04)

why are you trying to redirect before the command as well as after?

Code:
[user@server ~]$ nmap -p22 google.com

Starting Nmap 5.51 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-06-17 16:36 EDT
Nmap scan report for google.com (74.125.140.101)
Host is up (0.036s latency).
Other addresses for google.com (not scanned): 74.125.140.102 74.125.140.113 74.125.140.139 74.125.140.100 74.125.140.138
rDNS record for 74.125.140.101: ye-in-f101.1e100.net
PORT   STATE    SERVICE
22/tcp filtered ssh

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.56 seconds
[user@server ~]$ nmap -p22 google.com > foo.txt
[user@server ~]$ cat foo.txt 

Starting Nmap 5.51 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-06-17 16:36 EDT

like that. your output indicates that you are trying to redirect the input into the output, that is not going to work.

also please use code flags. [ code ] [ / code ] remove the spaces and put your copy/paste from the CLI into them.

p.s. if you are putting this into a script, it might be a good idea to use >> instead of >

> will create the file and overwrite 100% of data inside the file.
>> will create the file if it does not exist and if it does it will "append" to the end of the file the new output.

Try
Code:
stunc stun.stunprotocol.org -b > res 2>&1

As hinted by UnSpawn, stdout (chan 1) is going to the file, but stderr (chan 2) is not, so you need to change that.

@lleb: I don't think that's a re-direct before the cmd, more like the last part of his bash prompt.
