Strange SSH/Putty Problem
Hello, I have a rather strange problem with only one of my servers for ssh via putty.
When I type, it starts to type fine in SSH. But once it goes into the second line, the first line gets overwritten instead of going to the next line. I'm pretty clueless as to why this is happening and didn't even really know what to search for to find others having similar problems.
The screenshots below shows the process in action:
The following is what I actually typed:
hello. this is how the first line looks like. fine. but the second line goes on top.... and the third line and the rest of them will now work perfectly fine as if there's no problem at all.
its because putty is abit like cmd prompt. it accepts commands its not a text editor you want to use nano or vim for that if you want to make text files etc.
what is it that you trying to do exactually?
just enter a command press enter.
enter another command press enter.
dont understand why you need two lines?
are you doing some vi commands? I had a similar question when i was beginning to use putty myself.
No, I'm not doing any text edits. I'm just writing regular commands on prompt.
The problem is that when I need to write a command that's rather long, it starts overlapping and I can't see what's written there. So, it's quite annoying for me.
not sure why its doing that doesnt do it my servers. what command you trying to type in thats so long anyway?

ctrl x and y to save
that should execute what you type in mycommand file?
chmod 777 mycommand
afterwards to remove it.
thx for the potential work around... but, looking for a solution because it really is an annoyance.
There are lots of long commands, for example, if you need to reference a in depth directory like "cp /long/path/goes/here to/another/long/long/directory/file. Biggest problem with this happens when I start pressing backspaces...
I've never had such a problem before either and is very foreign to me...
just a thought but are your keyboard settings setup correctly. eg. set to the correct lanuage and regional setting(s)?
Putty's set to UTF-8 as well.
My keyboard is standard US layout.
VI is mostly used editor in Linux. It give a strong user experience in functionality. It helps mainly in programming specially when doing programming for GCC.
