I have a relatively new installation of FreeBSD v5.1, and the machine

except for a minor vi problem: I cannot navigate using the arrow

I'm now accessing the server over ssh via a terminal window on a Mac
laptop running OS X (a new & distant relative of FreeBSD, FWIW). I
access lots of machines this way, including a Solaris machine, a
couple of Linux boxen, and at least one other FreeBSD machine (not
mine), and I don't have this problem on any of them. I assume it's a
termcap problem, but I don't know how to fix it. Any ideas?
Have you tried setting the TERM env variable to 'xterm' or 'xterm-color'
in your .cshrc file (or the rc file for the shell you use)?
That did it -- thanks! (TERM=xterm-color; export TERM) in ~/.profile.
