    Num Lock & Nano / MC Issues

    Hi all, I am having a problem with Numlock in Linux. I am using SSH to login to my server. At command line at number keys on my keypad with numlock turned on work fine. But if I launch the nano editor or midnight commander, the number keys no longer function and act more like arrow keys.

    Any suggestions? I searched google for this and tryed resetting the terminal, nothing seems to work. Have actually had this problem for years with Midnight Commander but it was never a big deal. Now it seems I want to finally solve the problem.

    I am not an expert, but it has to do with the type of
    terminal you are using, whether it intercepts the
    keystrokes or sends them to the remote application.
    Different terminal types will have different menus
    for customization

    What terminal should I use with ssh so that numlock work appropriately with Nano/Pico/MC? Any thoughts?
