SSH solution
Authored by: melo on Jun 13, '02 11:16:00AM

Thanks for this tip. Not only does it work for Terminal but also for xterm..

Regarding the SSH problem (exporting to the remote host the TERM=vt100-color), my solution was this (bash syntax, adapt to your favorit shell):

alias ssh="TERM=vt100 ssh"

Best regards

SSH solution for tcsh?
Authored by: soulrider2k on Nov 05, '02 09:49:30PM

added:
"alias ssh 'set TERM=vt100 ;ssh'"
to .tcshrc (I don't use bash :-)

any idas why i get:
[habanero:~] bryan% ssh
Alias loop.
[habanero:~] bryan%


back when attempting ssh connections?

I don't appear to have any other ssh aliases...

[habanero:~] bryan% alias | grep ssh
ahost clear; ssh admin@hostx
ct clear; ssh host1
g2k clear; ssh boys@host2
pps clear; ssh admin@host3
skully clear; ssh bryan@host4
ssh set TERM=vt100 ;ssh

Any thoughts would be most welcome. I am STOKED that I found this thread, I am so sick of invoking screen when i want to edit a file with vim (:syntax on)

SSH solution for tcsh?

The alias you use end's with ssh again, so tcsh tries to replace it again... It creates a alias loop.

Try this:

alias ssh 'set TERM=vt100; /usr/bin/ssh'

Best regards,

I found a solution for this.
when using tcsh, put this in your .tcshrc file.....

alias ssh 'setenv TERM vt100;/usr/bin/ssh'


Sweet.
