Get no colors on terminal using ssh to connect to apple machine(bash shell)


Hi All,
I am using Scientific Linux on my machine and i use SSH to connect to a apple machine. I am not been able to see any color on the terminal. Not for folders and executable and not in vi also even if i set color on. So i guess the connection does not permit colors. I am able to connect to other machine which are again Scientific Linux and shows all colors. Please suggest what could be the solution to this problem.

Thanks,
Shailendra

Well, if it's showing colors to everything else but the Apple machine, my guess is the apple machine doesn't support colors over that type of connection.

A ssh from other apple machine to the first machine does display colors . So i do not think the first does not support color.

No, it seems to. Since Apple-to-Apple works, but Linux-to-Apple doesn't, that points to the Apple system/configuration. Since you've got colors from linux-to-linux, that also points away from a linux issue.

Ok.. I see your point and also the point that when i connect through putty i do not get color again points to the same conclusion.
