Background process hangs


I have a process A running in the background. When I start another process B also in the background, the system hangs the moment I hit any key. Process A and B communicate over a socket. Iam not even able to do a telnet to the system. Is there any precautions that I need to take while running in background.

Thanks,
Dhanesh.
