    SFTP repeat previous command


    In ssh I can hit the up or down arrows to scroll through previous commands. I can't figure out how to do this with sftp. Is there a keyboard command to access the previous command(s)?
    Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS and/or Mac os 10.6.8

    Thanks.
    Dave.

    I just tried up arrow in sftp shell on a centos server and it worked. So I suspect its the version of ssh/sftp not supporting it.

    Must be. I have looked all over the web and tried a bunch of different key combinations with no luck. Thanks for the response.
