Incorect charecters when using telnet/SSH


I recently setup a RedHat 8.0 box. When I telnet or SSH into the box from a remote location some of the characters namely "-" are not displayed right. I have a example of the output of a man page.

LS(1) User Commands LS(1)

NAME
ls ‚ list directory contents

SYNOPSIS
ls [OPTION]... [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION
List information about the FILEs (the current directory by default).
Sort entries alphabetically if none of ‚cftuSUX nor ‚‚sort.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options
too.

‚a, ‚‚all
do not hide entries starting with .

‚A, ‚‚almost‚all
do not list implied . and ..

‚‚author
print the author of each file
:
What do I need to set so that all the characters display correctly? Thanks in advance for any help.

Sounds to me like you need to change the character set on the telnet software you are using. Just a guess...
