ssh daemon colors?


hello,

i used to be running libranet on my server, and switched to debian woody. now that i made the switch, i'm no longer seeing any colors when i ssh to my server. i haven't changed any settings on my ssh client except allowing the new RSA key. could anyone tell me how to set up sshd so that color is sent to clients?

thank you!

colour is a terminal specific thing. You are specifying colour output right? try
ls --color=always
and see what you get.

i'm assuming the ls --color=always is what i'd enter on the client? i'm not seeing any color when i use it.

yes, the client. use whatever client you like (which is what btw?) and ssh to the server in question. at the command prompt, use the ls command. things should appear in the default colours set up by the debian distro.

is your client on a *nix machine? I'm assuming so, but colours work for me using putty on winblows just fine...

i'm using the standard ssh client that comes with debian. when i use ls at the command prompt, nothing is appearing in color. i was wondering if it was a server issue because i'm pretty sure colors used to work with the debian ssh client (and i'm definitely sure they appeared with a mindterm java client), and they are no longer appearing.
