How do I configure the keyboard on a terminal session?
I connect to a new FreeBSD box via OpenSSH (in PuTTY). My shell is BASH. The Delete, End and Home keys just type a tilde ("~") instead of doing what I expect. How do I change this to make the End key jump to the end of the command line, the Home key jump to the beginning and the Delete key delete the currently highlighted character on the command line.
FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE (i386 on a Pentium II)
PuTTY Release 0.53b / OpenSSH 3.8.1pl
GNU Bash 2.05b.0(1)-release
