    Telnet and termianl Emulation


    When I telnet to my linux box from Win2K everything is great, Vi works wonderfully, I can use arrows and it is color coded

    When I do it from 98SE or NT4 or basically anything other than 2000, my arrows don't work in VI and it is not color coded.

    Is there some envrinoment variable I can set so it will work normally? I am more concerned about arrows than colors. I just want to be able to navigate normally using VI.

    I type echo $TERM at the bash prompt and I see something like
    ANSI. That doesn't tell me much.

    Thanks,
    MIKE

    What app are you using on the Win boxes? Standard telnet client, from the cmd, or some other app?
    Try secureCRT, Putty or any other SSH/telnet client, and I think you will get what you want...

    I use the standard Telnet app in the windows machines. I can't always ssh in because I work in labs.

    Give this one a shot then. A single executable without installers etc. I think it's around 200kB. Runs great... http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html
