Hi all,

Just in case any one experiences this problem, run ssh with the -t


ssh -t remotehost program

If you then get a pseudo terminal error, do;

ssh -t -t remotehost program

The man page of ssh states that this will force force tty allocation
if when ssh has no local tty which is what I do when;

ssh remotehost imf_disp
