Just thinking… a suitable work-around for such OSes would be to set the following in ~/.ssh/config: Host my.old.host SetEnv TERM=vt220 Note I haven't tested this to see if it works, just read `man ssh_config`. Obviously this doesn't help with other use cases like `telnet`. For those, one could do `TERM=vt100 telnet foo.example.com 1234`. If newer OSes already understand TERM=pccon, perhaps in the medium term it might be worth reviewing this default setting. -- Stuart Longland (aka Redhatter, VK4MSL) I haven't lost my mind... ...it's backed up on a tape somewhere.
