Using tomcat on NT4.0, and cygwin perl is being used since it implements the perl alarm() fcn on windows. The servlet can invoke the script using: Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(theScript); the script starts, does a dns lookup and some ftp commands succeesfully but hangs once it starts doing an ftp put. Works if I put the command line in a ".bat" file and execute "start name.bat" above but I need the exit value of the script.

Are you grabbing the output of the process? You need to accept the output stream and error stream or the process can freeze up. Bill
