During the steps of tracing the child process with the hashcalc binary within gdb, after the command: ‘set follow-fork-mode child’ has been entered, i am still unable to trace the child process.
Additionally, I have checked to see if the process is catching vfork and fork and there is no difference.
Lastly, I checked to see if I needed to connect within gdb and from another ssh session: netcat 172.16.172.112 30001, but both didnt work.
Could you please advise?

Apologies, I solved this confusion.
For anyone wondering: (it was setting the breakpoint before the ‘set follow-fork-mode child’ command)
Once you enter run, in another SSH session enter:
- netcat localhost 30001
Then you will see the breakpoint was reached in GDB
