Using Function Keys with SSH


Ok, I got my remote access working. Now I can log into my office server from home, and do everything I want to do....well, almost.

There's one application on the server that I need to run, but it relies on the function keys a lot. When I ssh into the server, all that the function keys give me are strange characters on the screen, like "[2" -- they don't actually do what they're supposed to do.

Has anyone experienced this, and is there any way to correct it?

Try to set from bash
export TERM=xterm

You also need to define keys F1, F2 using /etc/inputrc; if keys apps specific it might work or even not try out

Ok, i found a solution. I'm now running PuTTY with the keyboard option set to SCO. All the functions keys work now. Man, I'm loving this!
