Having a little bit of a headache with Cygwin and line wrapping when ssh'd
to another system. I normally use SecureCRT for ssh because of this
problem but I figured I'd ask the group.
I'm using the most current version of Cygwin on a Win2K Pro
laptop. Recently updated my setup.exe and I usually do updates weekly so
its pretty current.
What's happening is when I view or vi a file on a remote UNIX system
through OpenSSH in Cygwin, the line wrapping is messed up. Through
SecureCRT, a line needing to be wrapped will break at say column 80 and the
remaining text will be immediately beneath the first part of the line. A $
command in view/vi works as it should. Nothing weird.
In OpenSSH under Cygwin, the line will break at column 80. Instead of
characters 81 through whatever showing up immediately on the next line of
the screen, there is a blank line. Then character 81 through whatever show
up on the 2nd line. A $ command in view/vi attempts to work correctly. It
will goto the same position on the screen as it does through SecureCRT but
the cursor is on a blank line. The text it should be on top of is beneath it.
Something like this:
OpenSSH in Cygwin:
<what shows up as a blank line on the screen>
My stty settings on the remote system looks just fine. Compared to the
stty setting of the SecureCRT window of the exact same size, they are
Any ideas ??? Does this have something to do with the CYGWIN variable? My
CYGWIN variable is:
I even set my CYGWIN32 variable to:
Didn't help. Wasn't sure if this had something to do with OpenSSH or
Cygwin but I though I'd start here first. Any thoughts appreciated.
