problem when trying to ssh from xp

Hi LQ,

I've got a problem:

When I try to make ssh connection remotely from windows xp machine to RHEL5 machine, I've got this awful distorted picture. Though on the local machine it seems everything ok. Everything is also ok when I ssh remotely from a fedora machine. This problem only refers to ncurses-based applications, like lokkit or mc. But ONLY from windows machines. I've tried to ssh from another xp computer, and the result was the same. Though yesterday everything was going well, till I haven't enabled SElinux in permissive mode, relabelling entire /. Maybe that was the problem? I've tried to disable SElinux, but that changed nothing.

ANY help will be appreciated

Just make sure that before you start any ncurses-based application you execute

$ export LC_ALL=C

Or configure your terminal emulator to interpret UTF-8.

I recommend trying PuTTY as your SSH client.

Thanks that almost solved my problem It is a locale problem indeed. There are only several "B?" characters left. I'll google further
