when i use ssh from the terminal to log into my school's system to do work i can't use the backspace key or the delete key? is there something im doing wrong or not doing?
% ssh www.ua.edu -l ihsanshade
the above is what im doing to run ssh
any help would be greatly apprectiated
the delete key thing is normal. The backspace problem is normal in putty if you are using putty, if you are using a linux term to ssh then backspace should work or at least it works in Konsole. ssh can act differently depending on the shell you are using.
try to use bash if available, that's what i prefer & it works as expected, delete, copy/past, etc...
simply type "bash" after u login to see if it's available
