ssh problem after creating an ssh alias.
I have edited the .bashrc in a server to include an alias. I included the line

alias name='ssh nameserver'

After this, I logged off and then I reconnected using the alias, but after that when I try to reconnect I only get the welcome message
and nothing else, that is, I can't type anything, even CTRL-C to cancel the operation. If anybody knows how to fix this...

My first thought is that is might have something to do with input/output redirection, but an alias shouldn't have this problem. Perhaps one thing to try would be to change the alias to use the full path for ssh. Or, maybe the 'name' that you've chosen is an existing linux command?

I really don't know why it would be having this trouble...
